When you use Newspapers.com, you can gather articles and entries you discover about your ancestors into a clippings file. Since Newspapers.com is a subsidiary of Ancestry.com, the coolest feature is that you can then save those newspaper clippings to your Ancestry tree.
Finding newspaper clippings on Ancestry.com is pretty cool. Thus far, I have found 100 articles and I have still not exhausted all the family members on my trees!
