I am excited about Google and other entities scanning old newspapers and documents and putting them online. I like to do genealogy research and this will make it so much easier for people to have access to these things. When I spotted this in the newspaper, I knew it had to be in my journal. I had gotten a copy of a 1877 book on eBay the same day with a piece on everyday life of eary Ohio written by my g-g-great grandfather! It told about him being a mill boy in 1812 and his mother giving corn pone to the Indians. I wanted to finish this journal, so I could start a new one in February. I took out about seven pages. It is really full and fluffy, so it needed to be thinned down anyway. Posted by Hello
