Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

As I slowly go through my database and upload images to create my Ancestor pages, I am finding that many of my folks are extensively documented. But I really haven’t looked at that documentation recently, some in 4-5 years.

So with each Ancestor page I create, I do a “cursory” Google search, and I run that person’s name through some of the appropriate FamilySeach databases, as well as Find A Grave, and several other free sites. Not digging very deep, just a quick check.

This morning I was preparing to create a page for my grandfather, Victor Earl Hall. I typed his name into Google and look what I found:

VicEHall8

A freebie from newspaperarchive.com, the 2 Mar 1936 edition of the Denton Record Chronicle.

I already have a copy of his marriage license, but the newspaper announcement in pretty neat, too!
