Hello

Tried 4 times to put this in plain text - hope it works this time -

Found this link (subject line) for old newspaper articles >from 1860
-2013 related to our ancestors in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin, and
a few in Virginia and other states - Articles mostly originated >from
Duluth newspapers.

It offers more than 5000 news articles in original format that involved
a Jewish name, births - weddings - obits - fancy parties - lawsuits etc.

This may help others

http://www.garon.us/newsindex.html (old newspaper articles)

to search for name - hit control and F and then type in name (usually
upper right hand corner)

For example, I found 26 articles on the BUBLEY name.

For those that may have roots in Chicago, I found the Chicago Jewish
Community Blue Book listing names, offices they held - charities they
were involved in - may help others in their research listing all their
officers etc.
