  1. Great minds think alike. I downloaded the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald for the day I was born just this week but I posted it on my Book of Me private blog. I wasn’t as brave as you – my age is no secret but I couldn’t bring myself to share publicly.

  2. That is great Kristin. You will enjoy one of the later prompts……

    I gave it a try and Genealogy Bank doesn’t have any newspapers in my area in my birth year, let alone birth date! :( Perhaps in the future… :) Such a great idea!

      Awww. Maybe there’s a front page from somewhere nearby? Or for the week you were born? I have lived places that only had a weekly paper and didn’t have any world news, just local things.
