The Value of San Jose Mercury News Historical Data

Before the Internet came along, the primary vehicle for disseminating the comings and goings of any community was the newspaper. With the San Jose Mercury News archive, you can climb through a window into the past.

Whether you’re looking for marriage announcements, death notices, obituaries, or feature stories about your ancestors, these archives can form a considerable part of any family history project.

So why else are these archives so valuable?

They add color to the stories of your family’s past. Official government records tend to provide the basic facts and nothing more. Newspapers tell the story of figures in the community and give you a personal account of how your ancestors lived and what they did.

Furthermore, San Jose Mercury News historic newspapers may reveal through their announcements some of the relatives you didn’t know about.

Countless GenealogyBank users have discovered family members they’d never heard of through searching the San Jose Mercury News database.

The historical data you uncover could form the foundation for additional research and further discovery.

Of course, this is the most basic search of San Jose Mercury News historic newspapers you can make. You also need to know how to narrow down your results to ensure you have the right person.

Tens of thousands of Americans share the same name, so you need to be extremely careful not to make any mistakes.

Here’s a step-by-step guide for performing an advanced search of San Jose historic newspapers.

We also recommend downloading our free “Tips for Searching Newspapers” guide for even more useful strategies.

  • Step One - Include the first, last, and any middle names of a specific relative.
  • Step Two - Add in some keywords, such as the name of the town they lived in or the school they attended.
  • Step Three - If you need to further narrow down your results, consider excluding certain keywords, such as those of nearby towns and schools.
  • Step Four - Add in a year range to further hone in on a specific ancestor. This doesn’t have to be exact.
  • Step Five - Take advantage of filters to order results by best match, oldest, and newest. This can help you cut through any close match entries that don’t match the men and women within your family tree.

Tips for a Successful San Jose Mercury News Archive Search

When dealing with common names, it can be difficult to find the right person amidst 330 years of U.S. history. Thankfully, there are multiple ways in which you can avoid adding people to your family tree who have no relation to you.

The problem lies within the way records were taken before modern recordkeeping standards were introduced. A newspaper editor likely recorded information from oral sources; therefore, they may have misspelled a name or made a blatant factual error.

Here are some more advanced tips for making sure you find the right ancestors via San Jose Mercury News historical data:

  • Search for a relative by their initials. It was common practice for people to be recorded officially by the initials of their first and middle names.
  • Female relatives were often recorded via their husband’s name. Rather than searching for a female ancestor’s name, try searching for their husband’s name instead.
  • Use common misspellings. One wrong initial could mean you miss that forgotten family member.

It can be time-consuming but incredibly exciting to come across family members you’d never heard of before.

The San Jose Mercury News archive can add some color to the names. Discover your story. Be amazed at what you find.

Newspaper
Grade the News reports that MediaNews, the parent company of the Pulitzer Prize-winning daily paper San Jose Mercury News, will be laying off 60 reporters from Silicon Valley's premiere news source. That's nearly a quarter of the news staff. Like many newspapers across the country, MediaNews blames the internet for its financial failures.

Though the cuts haven't been announced officially yet, the leak came from a reputable source: John Bowman, executive editor of *San Mateo County Times, *also owned by MediaNews:

The staff reductions were discussed at an April meeting [Bowman] attended at the Mercury News along with top editors of MediaNews, which now owns every paid daily newspaper around the San Francisco Bay but the San Francisco Chronicle. The proposed cuts would affect 24% of the 250 member Mercury News

Mr. Bowman said he disclosed the layoff plan and resigned as executive editor of the *Times *because he was fed up with MediaNews' policies of trying to run newspapers short-handed.

San Jose Mercury News executive editor Susan Goldberg also quit two weeks ago to begin a job at the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which is owned by Wired parent company Advance Publications. She has not said whether this move was related to the threat of job cuts.

Grade the News reporter John McManus contextualizes the Merc layoffs:

Reductions in staff have been common at newspapers across the country in recent years. The San Francisco Chronicleannounced May 18 that it would trim 100 newsroom jobs from its 400-member staff in coming months. Newspapers have been losing both subscribers and advertisers to the Internet, according to figures compiled by the Newspaper
Association of America. Their most recent data shows those losses are accelerating.

Unleashing all those highly trained journalists on the world can hardly be a bad thing: I predict there will be more well-researched news blogs and podcasts in coming months, created by traditional reporters who've gone over to the Web side. The Merc's loss is our gain.
