Paperclips: Selected Clippings from the Montgomery Sentinel [Maryland], 1900-1950


From 1900 until 1950 the Austin sisters clipped selected items from the Montgomery Sentinel newspaper and saved them in two notebooks. These were supplemented with announcements and obituaries from the compiler's collection and arranged chronologically. Where available, additional information has been supplied, such as name of cemetery, names of parents and maiden names. The types of entries include death notices, obituaries, birth announcements, wedding announcements, school graduations, teaching position listings, and local event announcements. The entries are mostly about Montgomery County, Maryland, with a few about neighboring areas, i.e. Washington, D.C., Frederick and Baltimore. Names within each entry which are bolded have been indexed and maiden names have been cross indexed.
