Tuesday’s Tip: Even Modern Publications May Have Relevant Genealogical Information!

Google is good- always amazes me at what a search can find on the astounding internet. A recent search that included the terms Broida, Parkersburg, and WV, found the pamphlet “”101 Unique Places to Dine in West Virginia.” I almost dismissed it as being too modern, but then decided to take a minute to check it out, since Google is seldom (never?) wrong. Sure enough, the Broida Building was listed as the location for a unique food and drink emporium, and it even mentioned that the building was built in the 1920s and housed a store for “fine women’s fashion.” This would have been “Broida’s,” owned by –, and with another store in Parkersburg, West Virginia, about 75 miles west.

Quite an unexpected find in a modern-day flyer!
