I've been searching for individuals with the last name of Frame on Genealogybank recently in an attempt to locate something on the family in Chicago.
This is one last name (like many) that is difficult to search for because the last name has a meaning outside of being a last name and is a common word.
I've had some success using the family's residence in the Pullman or Kensington area of Chicago as additional keyword search parameters.
Other than locations and first names, does anyone have suggestions for searching for common names in databases such as this? I've also restricted my search to Illinois newspapers as well.
