Pat Mc Carran political Ad 1944 – Nevada

Sometimes a political ad will give you just as much information as an official record, for instance this 1944 political ad in the Nevada newspaper.

Blog 1 - 1944 - Pat McCarran re-elect pol. ad - Nev

In the ad they have his bio

Blog 2 - 1944 Bio - Pat McCarran re-elect pol. ad - Nev

I used the information off of the ad to create a tree and in so doing was able to find many more records.

Blog 3 - View of tree

I was able to get many items off of the newspaper collection that is on

Blog 4 - newsrenoeg.1954_09_29_0001 part 1

Blot 5 - Obit - Martha Harriet McCarran - Jul 1963 - Nev

In the end I was able to find three family tree owners who had some connection to the person in the political ad and I was able to send them not only the link to the ad but many more records.

So always look at all the items in the newspaper even if they seem to be way off track.

Thank You
