Small items in newspapers – Nettie Bedker

Small items in newspapers can provide the crucial clues you need to build a tree or a branch on your tree. The following small item from the 1913 Ludington, Michigan newspaper gave me two names (clues)

Mrs Glenn Willis visited by sister Nettie Bedker 1913

and I was able to build a tree and populate it with 38 people and still have 225 hints that I can look at.

So don’t over look small items in newspapers.

Here is the link to the small item:

Once I had created the tree and found more family members, I also found more items in the newspaper such as these.
