Interesting Facts for Birthday Scrapbook Layouts

Good Morning!  It is Sunday so that means I am working on genealogy today. As I was looking for an obituary I had a great thought…Newspapers are a great source of facts You can get great details about someone’s birthday for your scrapbook layout when you look at old newspapers. Now, I am not talking about sitting in a dusty old attic (this could lead to lots of discovery however) I bought a subscription to to find a relative that I have hit a dead end. In looking at the front page of this newspaper – which in this case is the day the woman died, I discovered that a newspaper in Santa Clara California was just 5¢. You just never know what you will find. I love to look at the old ads. You can find out what the weather was like when you or someone else was born, what day of the week it was and so much more.  You can get the information from your local library archives, or I use so I can look from the comfort of my chair.

If you are interested in genealogy please send me an e-mail and let me know. I would love to assist you any way I can.
