We routinely hear from genealogists telling about their success – “Wow, look what I found!”
and in the Portland Daily Advertiser (29 Jan 1851).
Then I quickly spotted the marriage announcement of William’s nephew – Captain Asa Garcelon (1796-1859) that was published in the Eastern Argus (Maine) 16 March 1825.
TIP: Colonial and 19th Century Newspapers often printed out of town birth, marriage and death notices. GenealogyBank makes them easy to find because it let’s you search all 3,700 newspapers for your ancestors.
TIP: Be flexible in your searches and remember that their obituaries or marriage notices just might have been printed in out of state newspapers – like the wedding announcement of Nicholas Goodson and Sarah Matthews in Isle of Wight County, Virginia – that was published in the Maine newspaper – the Eastern Argus in 1825. Like cable news television stations today – newspapers carried news from across the country.
There were no articles telling if Nicholas Goodson was ever arrested.
It is a great day for genealogy. What an opportunity we have to find these historic artifacts, articles and documents about our family.
