Lost Friends Column in the Advocate

A shoutout to Shannon Christmas who posted news of this on the Afrigeneas Facebook page.

In my lecture on newspaper research I mention the Lost Friends/Relatives columns in several newspapers as a great source for identifying the former owner in addition to other vital clues.

This database of such columns for a 14 month period in the Southwestern Christian Advocate is a wonderful contribution to genealogical research.

My hope is that they will add more months to the database down the road.
