Newspapers can contain information you may not expect.

This item from an 1898 edition of the Denver, Colorado, Denver Post discusses the “disappearance” of a relative and his apparent “reappearance” with a girlfriend.

Stories you find may not be quite as scandalous, but details in newspapers can help you fill out your picture of a relative.
