Newspaper Clippings

 Newspaper clippings can help reveal tragic events that occurred both historically and personally in the lives of your ancestors. These images here depict a tragic ending to my maternal great great grandfather and grandmother. Salvatore met his tragic end when he was killed by an intoxicated taxi driver. Giuseppa (Josephine) was overcome by gas. At this stage she is widowed. While I’v never met either person, I feel for them. When digging into your own ancestry, you are not done until you can create a story and have some type of emotion.
