Business Card Collection Expanded to Include Advertisements

Many of the documents included in our Subscription Data area include advertisements for local businesses, and these are now being added to the free Vintage Business Cards & Advertisements collection.

If you've had success in locating ancestors in census records, you may have delighted in learning their occupation. Business cards and advertisements can provide even more information about their career, including the name of employer and title of the position they held.

Today over twenty advertisements were uploaded from two Fort Wayne, Indiana documents. Additional images will be added on an ongoing basis. Update notices will be included in The Genealogy News.
