: An ancestor of mine supposedly stayed at the Grand Hotel during 1871, visiting from Chicago. I was wondering if guest registries still exist from 1871 for the Grand Hotel and where they are located now?


It was common for local newspapers to publish the names of visitors staying at hotels. Here is a link to a newspaper archive for the western United States.
