If you are like me and could spend hours reading & researching in old newspapers, GenealogyBank.com is a membershership you should not miss out on. Recently while researching there, I came across some personal ads in the New York Herald for Oct 9 1892. I thought it was kind of amusing so I decided to share a few of them. I have to say it really surprises me that even back that far there were these types of ads. It definitely indicates that online dating was simply a natural progression dating back even further than this. I find it hard to think of this as the "old fashioned way".
