This article appeared in an unknown newspaper – and I’m not sure how accurate the story about Billy giving away a million-dollar fortune … particularly when he just finalized a bankruptcy in 1930.   BILLY GALLAGHER, CAFE OWNER, DIES Was Among the First to…

Yankton Press & Dakotan October 20, 1941 (Evening); p 4, col 3 I don’t usually post the classifieds, but I realized that there are a lot of addresses, and even some names listed … names and addresses that someone might be searching.  So I thought it would…

It’s not every child whose 9th birthday party ends up in the newspaper, but my Grampa wasn’t every child.  He was the son of Walter Gallagher – a man with a plan.  This article was likely published in late September 1933, name of publication unknown. The…

As we know, Billy Gallagher was somewhat of a celebrity.  His passing and his funeral made the news for a while.  Over the next several posts, I will share all the articles from Pop’s scrapbook and even others I found on my own.     GALLAGHER, OLD…

These articles were published in December 1933. Publication name unknown.  This clearly was in the midst of the Great Depression – a time when communities worked together to succeed. Cops Offer To Take Pay Cuts Ridgefield Council Notified of Their…

Yankton Press & Dakotan October 20, 1941 (Evening); p 2, col 8 Am I the only one who read the title of this post “Cattle Moooving in Big Numbers?” … I wonder if the reporter had the same thought back in 1941. CATTLE MOVING IN BIG NUMBERS Belle Fourche…

This tragic story affected more than just the families of the victims.  The police department suffered a blow to its reputation due to some technical mistakes made during the investigation of this high-profile case.  Unfortunately, the last article is not…

Story
Tagline
I want to connect with other people in the genealogy world. However, if you add me to your circles and I can't tell that you have an interest in genealogy ... chances are that I won't add you back and will likely block you altogether.
Introduction
Paralegal by day, but my alter ego is a Genealogist.  I have been working on my genealogy in fits and starts since about 1990, when my grandfather passed away and I inherited his research. I am currently enrolled in ProGen 24, working my way toward genealogy certification. You can contact me at lostancestors [at] gmail [dot] com.

I am a member of the Kiva Genealogists for Families team. Please consider joining the team and make loans to help alleviate poverty worldwide and create a new family tradition at the same time! 
Bragging rights
I completed my AAS in Paralegal Studies at Chattanooga State in 2011, at the age of 42 ... and survived.
