Every time I see that an upcoming date is also the same date as a relative’s birthday, anniversary or even death date, I look for newspaper articles about their special day.
That happened this month: August 13th was the 97th wedding anniversary of my grandparents, who were married in 1922. So, I checked GenealogyBank to see if it had articles about their wedding.
It didn’t disappoint.
Genealogy Tip: Check the old newspapers for articles about the special days of your ancestors’ lives. See if the newspaper reported on them and what the news was that day.
Newspapers, such as the collection in GenealogyBank’s Historical Newspaper Archives, recorded every day of our ancestors’ lives.
