A little newspaper searching


One of the nice things about OCR is that one locates items one never even thought to look for.
The May 06, 1898 Denver Evening Post contained the following headline. This was located when I searched for the word Troutfetter in one of the newspaper databases at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City last week.
The database I used was one of the academic databases to which the FHL has access. Genealogists should also consider using local college or academic libraries which may also have access to historical and other databases that may be helpful in their searches.
I'll be updating the website with more information on Phililp as I'm able to locate it. Phillip is a first cousin of my great-great-grandfather, John Michael Trautvetter.
