When searching for your ancestor in the newspaper, don’t be surprised if you find a mention of him or her in a town that is new to you!

In the newspaper, The Castilian, published in Castile, New York, on 15 May 1952, we learn that Mr. and Mrs. Graydon Wallace and sons of Long Island spent the weekend with her mother, Mrs. Sadie Witter.  The article is under the heading of “Portageville”.







If your ancestor is Mrs. Graydon Wallace, you have now discovered that she had sons (more than one), and you now know who her mother was.  And, you know that Mrs. Wallace and her husband were from Long Island.  Additionally, you now know that her mother resided in Portageville.

This is a lot of information in just a few lines!
