Among family history buffs, the availability of old newspapers' online is a godsend. We've found info we would never have known to search for, since the articles were often wire service fillers in other towns' papers.
In particular, we can search for family names over thousands of issues in dozens of towns from, for instance, 1880 to 1922 (earliest to latest digitized copies). Unusual names work best, of course.
These first two are interesting not only for the familiar name involved, but for the physical distance between the two newspapers (Los Angeles, California, and Washington D.C.) BTW, I'm not typing the family name to keep it from being searchable from HH...you need to recognize the name in the article.
Now this blurb made me laugh. We called this practice a "Shiveree"--something family and friends did to a newlywed couple early in their marriage, when the couple was probably engaged in what newlyweds often do. THIS one got out of hand, sounds like.
And lastly, here's an article Larry found in the Duluth Tribune of August 1, 1915. We're pretty sure this wasn't OUR Charlie. We do know that Charlie and Elizabeth were back in Duluth, at least for a time, around 1917 (we have his WWI draft card from there). But we also know a Norwegian Charles Sand lived in Duluth around this time. Well then!
