Often times when I find an obituary or some other newspaper article, or even a document about an ancestor I get some "extra" stuff that happens to be printed on the same page, such as news articles, legal notices, ads, death notices, etc.

I created this blog to share all that "extra" stuff in case it's of value to someone else. I will also post the cool pieces of ephemera that I find at yard sales and flea markets that have no clear identifying descriptors as to whose family they belong to. 

This is going to be fun.

  1. Hi Leslie Ann,

    I just found your blog while searching blog types at Geneabloggers. You have a great site and it seems we both enjoy old newspapers. :) I've transcribed many articles and posted them to my blog, beeskneesdaily.com and I have a question for you...I've noticed you post actual news articles, are you able to copy them from online or are these paper copies? The newspaper site I use disables the copy function, so I have to type everything for my website. I also have a microfilm machine and transcribe directly to my computer, but sometimes it would be nice not to have to type so much!

    I look forward to following your blog.

    1. Hi! I was just checking out your blog. I like it.

      I have a combination of sources. Some of the articles are from newspaper clippings in my possession, some are digital copies from the net, and some are photocopies.

      You have a microfilm machine? That would come in handy.

      I look forward to following along your blog as well.
