Canadian newspapers are a strange mėlange of politics, religion, abuse, and general information.
Susanna Moodie, 1853.
Elizabeth Myers has been researching the development of the business of newspaper publishing within the County of Grey -- the publishers, the rivalries, the successes, and the failures -- since her retirement from the Ontario Community Newspapers Association. She will be the speaker at the Grey County Historical Society meeting on Wednesday, March 19, 2008 at 1:30 p.m. at Cooke's Presbyterian Church Hall in Markdale, Ontario. Non-members are welcome to attend.
Because newspapers are such an important tool in both genealogical and historical research, I am looking forward to hearing Elizabeth speak.
