Non-Famous People in the Newspaper-Your Genealogy Plate May Be Full

It's not just the rich and famous who appear in newspapers across the country. This 1956 item captures the license plate display of J. L. Goldenstein of Golden, Illinois. This item was in the San Diego Union, published a distance from Golden, Illinois. It didn't take much searching to determine that J. L. Goldenstein was the John Goldenstein--my great-grandma Habben's brother.

Don't assume that your "non-famous" people won't be in the newspaper.

You just never now. This item was obtained on GenealogyBank.

We'll have an interesting announcement regarding this picture in a future blog post.
