Congressman Edward Everett Robbins

I once wrote a book in which I tried to impress on the reader that it was important to write down one’s life story because in this world the only ones who get mentioned in the history books are notables and kings.

Well, in the United States we don’t have kings but we do have notables, congressmen, business tycoons and stars who get their life’s achievements written up for them. A case in point besides Henry Dickson is Congressman Edward Everett Robbins.

I found his item in a 1919 newspaper the “The News-Dispatch” – Jan 28, 1919, of Jeannette, Pennsylvania.

When I found a family tree for him I was only able to send the owner a link to the item, well now I can post his picture along with his long Obituary.

I hope that the owners of the family tree with this notable on one of their branches will be able to copy this photo and item, and put it on the Edward E. Robbins branch of the family.

This is all I could send the family tree owners in the past.

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
