Blog: The Ancestor Hunt

I came across this website, The Ancestor Hunt, through Pinterest (which is a great place to find family history related information).  I've poked around there a little bit and there are a few treasure troves to be found. 

Particularly for newspapers and photos

The photos for Illinois specifically lead me on a wonderful tangent that resulted in me locating a photo of my 4th great-grandfather that I have never seen before!  Gold mine!  (more to come from that story)

Lesson: Never hesitate to poke around on random websites, you never know what you will unearth!
