Response to no_hypocrisy (Original post)

2. I too have used newspapers.com as well as genealogybank.com for newspaper articles

when re my ancestors.
Found an article and photo re my grandfather's second wife whose name etc. were never spoken of in my family. Also details of the drowning of two separate men one in a river and another in Great Lakes when a ship went down due to shifting cargo.

Re my Michigan ancestors, I found articles about what we would now consider everyday life. They lived in a smaller city, where visiting out-of-town relatives and broken ankles were noted in the newspaper; also mentioned a relative that found a large honeycomb in a tree.

These stories give flesh to the bare bones names we have in family trees.
