Motherlode! A treasure trove of newspaper articles.

I came across a post on the Ancestry.com message boards from The Genealogy Genie , Jeannie Miyama, a wonderful person who volunteers her time at the California Archives and has access to many old newspapers. In one morning she was able to find and copy 38 articles (mostly obituaries and death notices) for members of my family! I am so thankful! Here are a few:


  1. Michelle, that is so cool! I loved the anniversary notice. Do you have dates that they were published?


  2. Yes, the filenames have the subject, the date and newspaper title.
