NEW YORK (AP) The city's most famous Christmas decoration was carefully lifted into place in Rockefeller Center on Thursday, continuing the annual tradition of holiday evergreen amid midtown skyscrapers.

The tree -- already adorned with its natural spruce cones -- will be decked with more than 30,000 lights and a 10-foot star... It will be lighted during a ceremony on Dec. 3 and remain in place until Jan. 7. -- AP, via minneapolis' WCCO.

Hello I hope you can help me. I am trying to do a project about the Rockefeller Center Christmas trees from the past. 1960, to be exact. My Mother, who has passed away, had a christmas tree taken from her house in Newmilford, PA. Where would I find archived stories or pictures from that year? Thank you in advance Donna Serpa (Mothers Maiden name, Bonnie Owens)

Actually the 1960 tree was taken from Emanual and Olga Owens home in New Milford, Pa. Maybe the correct name will help with the search process.
