August Happiness Challenge – Day 25

The “August Happiness Challenge” is hosted by Sam over at One Gal’s Musings.  Run on over to her place to learn all about it!


I am happy that I have discovered a source of historical newspapers online that is greatly helping me in reconstructing the stories of our ancestors.  While I am finding some sad things along the way, I am also finding moments of happiness, such as birth announcements, marriage announcements, and 50th anniversary announcements.  All of these things can be sources of more information for the family historian.  The old newspaper articles also help us to bring our ancestors to life, in a manner of speaking.  We get to learn a little more about what happened during that dash between their birth and death dates.

I find it very exciting!
