Otto Schildhauer was my maternal 2nd cousin once removed. While researching some collateral family members, I have come across a few individuals that I have been able to locate quite a bit about with minimal research time and effort.
One of these individuals is Otto Schildhauer (1898-1959). I have been able to find a pretty good summary of his life just searching newspapers.
Also, when people talk about the lack of privacy these days, I like to bring old newpapers up. It's a good illustration that social networks really aren't a new idea. It's only the technology that has changed.
