Do you have unsourced newspaper clippings in your files? Thanks to my grandmothers, I have quite a few. Fortunately, most of those clippings came from Kansas communities. Thus, I have been able to locate those clippings in the digitized newspapers.
Somehow, buried in my Kansas clippings is one that is likely from Michigan.
