I love Newspapers.com and other services that are digitizing newspapers. I enjoy finding those tidbits of information that help me understand more about an ancestor’s life.
Unfortunately, I’ve discovered an issue with my documentation of those tidbits of news. In crafting a citation, I have used the page number at the top of the screen with the name and date of the paper. When I started finding the society news on page 1 in the Emporia Gazette, I began questioning that page number. Below is a screenshot showing the information about the paper along with the top of the paper showing the actual page number.
After discovering this issue, I started adding the source information when clipping an article.
Now that I know about the issue, I probably need to add more detail to the clipping so I know which page number the article is on. (https://www.newspapers.com/image/10216479/?terms=Smalling#)
