Treasure Chest Thursday - Birth Announcement of Randall J. Seaver

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a time to reveal another gem in my treasure chest of family history. 

The treasure this week is the birth announcement that appeared in the San Diego Union newspaper on 28 October 1943 on page 12 (accessed on GenealogyBank (

The announcement says:

Frederick Seaver and Mrs. Seaver (Betty Carringer) announce the birth of a son, Randall Jeffrey, Saturday at Paradise Valley sanitarium.  Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Carringer of San Diego and Mrs. F.W. Seaver of Northampton, Mass."

This was just one of many articles that I found after GenealogyBank added the San Diego Union and San Diego Evening Tribune for the years between about 1895 and about 1970 to the collection.   I'm still finding interesting stuff and saving it.

You're lucky to have all that information in print. My newspaper clipping that my mother clipped out of the Riverside, CA newspaper just said "Hawthorne, Boy". I think it was the hospital that supplied the info.
