Even Ads Can Be Clues

Don’t forget that ads in newspapers, yearbooks, etc. can also be clues. They may provide information about your ancestor’s residence, occupation, or even affiliations. A 1925 yearbook in Chicago contained an advertisement from a relative (well beyond high school age) that showed his occupation and where his business was located. Too bad there wasn’t a picture.
