You just found that all-important newspaper article that mentions your ancestor.  Wonderful!

Now, save the article!

You may be using a fee-based website that may not always be accessible to you.  Websites change!

And, when you save that all-important article, make sure you attach to it the citation so that you will know from where it came.

And, as I have said many times, save in more than one place.  I save everything in three places!  Computers can fail, external hard drives can fail, CD-ROMs can fail.
