Was Your Relative’s Picture in the Newspaper?


Newspapers can also contain pictures of your relative–if you are lucky.

This picture of Heye Albers was in an 1898 issue of The Rocky Mountain News. Fortunately it was an ink sketch which comes across better than photographs which were more common somewhat later. Fortunately his name was in the text of the article as at the time this picture was located the OCR did not “read” the name under his portrait.
