Newspaper Search Associates?

If a record on an ancestor turns up a "new" associate, consider searching for that name in contemporary newspapers. The associate may not appear in the census with an occupation or only appear in census records that list heads of households without occupations. Newspaper accounts--even advertisements--may give you some insight into that acquaintance's occupation.
