What happened the year that your great grandparents got married in 1902? Here is a little about 1902: Bureau of the Census is established; it later becomes part of the Department of Commerce. Approximately 150 thousand United Mine Workers strike in Pennsylvania for a wage increase and more suitable hours. A postal stamp cost 2 cents and the President was Theodore Roosevelt. Besides my first child being born in 1971 [Phillip West], postage was 6 cents, but leaped to 8 cents by May 16th. Richard Nixon was President and Jim Morrison of The Doors would die on July 3rd. in Paris. The TV show All in the Family would debut on CBS. You can add these and other information to your history of your family or just learn what happened from 1900-2010, the site is Year by Year 1900-2010 from Infoplease!
