They say, "there is a place for everything." Well that may be, but we have several items that are worth mentioning but which do not seem to have a 'home'. Hence, the development of this page. A lot of our ancestors were true collectors of "news", and kept up with who was doing what and when, etc. They may have saved these snippets of interest in a shoebox, an old tin box, in diaries, in a trunk, or made a scrapbook. These little gold mines, the jewels of information about our ancestors lives are precious, they are priceless.
