Newspaper Research

DearREADERS,
Our good friend Geoff Rasmussen wrote to explain how he solved the following research dilemma:

"If you have an old obituary that has been cut out of the newspaper, and the date and title of the newspaper no longer accompany it, you may have felt a sense of frustration. The line that reads '...he died last Thursday...' is exciting because you have an idea of when he died, but without the context of having the complete page of the newspaper, 'last Thursday' could be somewhat meaningless. Today's technology solves these dateless obituary problems."

To find out how Geoff solved such a problem in his personal family history research, read the full article in the LEGACY NEWS:

THANKS for sharing, Geoff. I am sure this approach will work for many of us!

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
