  1. More interesting newspaper records . . .

    Following our post from last week about what type of information can be found in newspapers, here is another snippet.  Whilst researching the Yule family of Scotland, an advert was found for James Yule, selling “Upper Peruvian Guano”.  That certainly wasn’t stated on the census entries for James, who was more usually recorded as a farmer.  Such adverts and newspaper snippets can provide additional information on what occupations our ancestors were practicing, and how they were diversifying their businesses!
