Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008
||Do You Know that you can search just the
the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections
in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the
What's New Page? You can narrow your search by including a key
word in the cemetery name or a township name in addition to the surname
you search. Then select the Find All Words option.
You'll also find obituary and other newspaper clippings using Clippings
partition. Additional clippings can be found in the Birth, Marriage,
and some other partitions.
|Reading a series of obituaries from a single
cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational
history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular
time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives
and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade"
or business. All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname
at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and for whom
a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for
the cemetery's obituaries.
