Senior volunteer Else Sparrow, the Sparrow family are descendants of a home child, showed me the originals of the Equity, the local newspaper. dating back to the 1880s. Although the early years are incomplete every so often a missing issue turns up in a heritage home.
I got to research on the computerized files of the Equity BMD index produced by Joan McKay & Dolly Allen, and in the Walter Brown collection of 180,000 Pontiac County names.
