My husbands family is full of research challenges as they have scattered around the globe from one generation to the next. From around the 1890's parts of his family have been based in the Singapore and Malaya areas and this website from the National Library of Singapore has been an absolute gem in helping me to find out more about these family members. A digital newspaper archive similar to Trove it is relatively easy to navigate and like Trove it is easy to get side tracked by these windows into the past. Through NewspaperSG I have been able to find articles, family notices and advertisements relevant to these families, which have provided me with invaluable information about them and helped to paint their pictures in more meaningful ways.
