For Tomorrow May Never Come: Newspaper Items from a Distance

Newspaper items mentioning your ancestor may appear a distance from where he lived, particularly if the event is somehow newsworthy.

This 1937 clipping came from a Hammond, Indiana, newspaper and referenced the death in Quincy, Illinois, of John Trautvetter.

Trautvetter's toast "for tomorrow may never come" was apparently a headline generated some newspapers just could not resist.

  1. It was an election year in 1903 and my relatives were involved in an altercation in the street of their home town with another family who supported the other candidate. Fortunately, the name of the town is rather unique and by searching with it, I've found reports of the incident from coast to coast and from the Northern US border to the Gulf of Mexico!
