Items in old newspapers may give excellent data such as names and dates that will help you enhance your family tree, to levels you would have taken many years to acquire.

Here is an example where someone (Arthur Bostwick) gives an old deed to the state library and the deed has names and dates that will help the genealogist who is working on a Bostwick Family Tree.
