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.
In the ad they have his bio
I used the information off of the ad to create a tree and in so doing was able to find many more records.
I was able to get many items off of the newspaper collection that is on Ancestry.com.
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.
