I browse newspapers quite frequently for items of interest....Fallen Acorns, to be exact.
San Francisco suffered through a horrible earthquake in April of 1906. Newspapers across the nation tried to cover the story the best that they could, with what little technology they had at that time.
Lucky for us, we have OCR to use as a valuable tool when hunting for surnames in digital content.
Newspapers.com, a partner of Ancestry.com, has recently increased their content to include a very large selection of American newspapers. If you haven't used this website, or you haven't looked at it for a while, I highly suggest that you take a few minutes to see what has been added.
I looked into the selections for St. Louis, Missouri, (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) and the Sicilian surname of my mother's family, Busalacchi. What I found for this date is fantastic.
