Front Page News – The Day I Was Born September 9, 2013Biography, The Book of Me#SpringfieldKristin I found this front page of the Springfield Republican for August 30, 1946 – the day I was born – on Genealogy Bank.

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. Kristin says: September 10, 2013 at 7:38 am (Edit) I figure I’m still the same age, if I tell or not. Unless I can find that time machine LOL. Yvonne says: September 10, 2013 at 10:24 am (Edit) Where is that flux capacitor when you need it? Kristin says: September 10, 2013 at 10:41 am (Edit) Exactly! Julie Goucher @ Anglers Rest says: September 10, 2013 at 8:11 am (Edit) That is great Kristin. You will enjoy one of the later prompts…… Kristin says: September 10, 2013 at 9:14 am (Edit) Can’t wait to see those later prompts. But it does give me a chance to do other things in between, either related to the Story of Me or all that other stuff I need to do! Julie Goucher @ Anglers Rest says: September 10, 2013 at 9:24 am (Edit) What is interesting is seeing where the prompt takes the discussion within the Facebook group and where it leads individual participants. Yvonne says: September 10, 2013 at 10:28 am (Edit) 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! Kristin says: September 10, 2013 at 10:37 am (Edit) 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. Yvonne says: September 10, 2013 at 10:40 am (Edit) I checked the whole state for the whole year. I’m sure that as Genealogy Bank adds papers, one will pop up. Oh, I should check for my hubbs and son though! Yvonne says: September 10, 2013 at 10:52 am (Edit) Nope. Not for hubbs and son either. Well darn! Guess I could do a national paper like the NY Times or something though. That would give a good idea of world events… Kristin says: September 10, 2013 at 12:18 pm (Edit) weird, state with no newspapers. At least no newspapers on that website.
