Advertisement Collection

Over the years I have built up a large collections of vintage newspapers and magazines. I lost a big portion of my paper in a flood a few years ago. It broke my heart to throw all that history out so now I am scanning what I have left.

Old newspapers are still one of my favorite sources for genealogy.  I love coming across an ad placed by a gr grandparent or ancestor over 100 year ago. Knowing what they did for a living gives us a better picture of who they were and how they lived.

I will be adding my collection by decade to this blog as time permits:) Please feel free to copy these ads for your own use. Old ads are great for scrapbooking!
