Newspaper Tuesday

Newspaper Tuesday #1 ~ Kempton Courier ~ 8/25/1911

Something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while is record my ancestor’s activities from the newspaper.  The newspapers used  to report everyday events such as who the family used to visit or had to dinner. I think is fascinating.  I could possibly learn new information that I hadn’t considered before.  I have many ideas for the newspaper research.
