Newspapers provide a wealth of information about ordinary people living their ordinary lives. Many researchers have accessed the newspapers published on Trove, but are unaware of the availability of other newspapers. This seminar provides detailed information about newspapers and how to access them. It also uses the case study of Captain Thunderbolt’s lover, Mary Ann Bugg, to show how a picture can be built up using snippets of information from different newspapers, and how a failure to correctly interpret these reports can lead to serious biographical errors.
