Small items in newspapers can provide the crucial clues you need to build a tree or a branch on your tree. The following small item from the 1913 Ludington, Michigan newspaper gave me two names (clues)

If you have access to Ancestry dot com then you can view the tree:

I hope this will help remind you not to overlook the small items.
