Look for more

If you find a death notice for a person on your tree don’t stop looking for more. Newspapers from different locations or the same newspaper may have more information than what you found.

I was working on the Pauline F Johnson Obit tree and found this notice.

Pauline F Johnson Mar 3 1908 Calif

I looked for more.

Pauline F Johnson Mar 3 1908 Calif 2

And looked for more again.

Pauline F Johnson Mar 3 1908 Calif 3

If I would have stopped after the first or second notice, I would have missed all the extra information.

Thank You.

Jose from Clarkston, Michigan

By Jose A Munoz

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.
