Newspapers play valuable role in documenting history: Lacombe couple spent afternoon searching archives in pursuit of family history

Eugene and Linda Yaworski of Lacombe, Alta. spent time at The Review Aug. 10 going over old copies of The Review in search of family history in her pursuit of her families genealogy.

“Hallelujah!” rang out over her excitement of finding information on her grandmother’s side of the family 100 years ago.

“Thank you, thank you,” said Linda for recording history and continuing to record history for future generations.

The role of newspapers is even more valuable in this day and age since social media doesn’t record history.

The ECA Review spent hundreds of dollars restoring and rebooking past issues of The Coronation Review.
