Whittlesey Family in the news

Many times you will find other items, in the same newspaper, about the family. I found one obit and once I created a tree to hold it, I was able to find several more items.

I found Harry’s obit and put it on a tree, I then found his wife Stella’s obit. As I added more people to the tree I was able to get some death dates for some of the people from other trees and that gave me clues as to where I should look for items. None of these came through as simple searches, I had to look for them by flipping through the newspaper. One of the items was even scanned on it’s side so I had to crop it and manipulate it to get it upright to put on the tree.

Here are the items I found:

I hope this blog post will help you find your relatives. Maybe one of these people is part of your family.

Thank You.

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.
