  1. I’m looking for the small article in the Kansas City Star – appearing in 1956 – announcing the Sinai Campaign.
    The article appeared in the Sunday paper.
    The message of the start of the war in Sinai was the first awareness I had that there exisited such a Jewish State!!
    This was 57 years ago!! I was then 11 yrs. old.
    When I was 19, I came to Israel on my own and have been living here ever since.
    I’d like to use this article in The Story of My Life – book I’m trying to write.
    If you could help me find this article in your archives, I’d be very happy!!
    It’s the ‘beginning’ of a great personal adventure – thanks to the Kansas City Star.
    Best wishes,
    Judy

  2. I may be lost in this venture. How might I obtain information on a murder/ suicide, at 604 W. Dartmouth Rd., K.C., MO 64113 on Thursday, Sept 28, 1978.
    The husband was Bill (William) Campbell, and the wife was Joanna (Jenkins) Campbell. We lived at 612 W. Dartmouth. but were out of town.

    If I am misdirected, please let me know, so as I can look elsewhere. Thank you.

    1. Pat- One of the best ways to find stories like this is to search newspapers. Stories like this could very possibly be in other newspapers, not just the home town newspapers. If you can’t find the article on a website, try searching the local library for the story. You can also try to obtain the police records.
