Curious as to what was in the newspaper, I decided to do a search for Grant Thompson in the Belleville, Kansas newspapers on Newspapers.com.
Instead of backing up a step and doing a more focused search, I opened many of the articles in new tabs. Thus, I had a browser open with who knows how many tabs.
I not only found an obituary for Ulysses Grant Thompson, but also for his wives.
In addition, I found news items related Grant Thompson’s siblings and his children.
This newspaper search took quite a few hours (days) to complete. However, the information contained in all of these articles was genealogy GOLD.
