postal service unclaimed mail

This is probably an obscure question, but does anyone know how long the postal service retains unclaimed mail? Where does it go? I have heard stories of people getting letters years later, but..... My situation is in researching my ancestry, the newspapers would published names of people with unclaimed mail and yes I have found a g.g.g.g. grandfather with unclaimed mail in NYC. from 1870!
Does anyone know if it would still exist? Any suggestions on where to go?
