Whether your candidate won or didn’t, the 2016 election is finally over. But imagine one of your descendants searching old newspaper stacks (or the web or whatever form of news distribution there will be in the future) for news of this election.
Do you have an ancestor that was involved in politics at the local, state or national level in America or another country? Did he/she run for office? Involved in a campaign? Here’s a picture of my grandfather Dan Murphy “campaigning” for Sheriff M.B. “Tiny” Taylor in Grays Harbor County in the 1930s.
We’d love to hear your story, including what resources you used. “Leave a comment” at the bottom of this post.
