Week 2 – Favourite Find

The prompt for 52 Ancestors this week is Favourite Find. Over the years I have made several interesting discoveries, but this clipping that I found recently, is one of my favourites.

As a Canadian Australian living in Australia, researching my Canadian ancestors can sometimes be a challenge, especially the Anglo lines. Recently my hometown newspaper was added to the digital collections found at Newspapers.com. I spent several hours this past weekend scouring the historical issues for articles about my ancestors. I came across this wedding announcment for my parents.
