yatah: bye

Seventies Sunshine: So that was the extent of my genealogical research earlier today. Going over the obits.

Daviss: well at least you went searching lol

Seventies Sunshine: I hadn't done it since my cousin Allena died. Which segues to this. I found out that my great grandfather's sister's middle name was Allena.

alt: that's the topic at our next AAGGMV meeting.... "Researching for Genealogical Gems in Obituaries"

Seventies Sunshine: Oh I found some good ones today on the obits that I looked at.

Daviss: Thats how i found a cousin years ago alt

Seventies Sunshine: Names of siblings as well as their current city of residence.

Selma: Good info

Daviss: I was going thru some old papers and this obit fell out on the floor When I picked it up I saw that it was about my Uncle Shug

Seventies Sunshine: ah huh who was it for? Ooh don't you love nicknames? lol I always get totally confused unless they put them in the obit.

Daviss: After reading it, and getting the names and called information for phone numbers

Seventies Sunshine: ok

alt: my earliest 'obit' is for a 3rd g-grandmother who died in 1861.. had information on her religious background.. that she was baptised at age 17 in the ME.

Selma: leave it to have an obit from 1861...LOL

Seventies Sunshine: Is she listed on the member rolls?

Daviss: that was in 1995 and the first number I called was my cousin Gladys.. We talk at least once a week

alt: that sounds like "serendipity' Daviss

Seventies Sunshine: When did Uncle Shug pass?

Daviss: 1980 or so

Seventies Sunshine: oh okay.

Daviss: also, I had an obit that was Angela's cousin and her picture was on it

Seventies Sunshine: This was her Bass folks?

Daviss: I think they migrated here in the early 50's

alt: Here you go Selma death notice (obit) from 1861

Daviss: They are related and I also know her Bass folks lol

Selma: Thanks alt..

alt: small world, huh Daviss?

Daviss: yep it sufre is alt sure

alt: I knew you day would not be complete without seeing the 1861 "obit" Selma LOL LOL LOL

Daviss: I wonder when the pictures of loved ones started to filter on the obits

alt: I would think not until the the 1970's or so... on a regular basis. for average folks.

Daviss: interesting to find out. I think I will go through my stack to see which one is my oldest

Seventies Sunshine: I definitely don't have any obits as old as 1861

Daviss: me either, I think 1941 is my oldest

Seventies Sunshine: The only reference to death before 1900 in my family is that of Tom Smith. Only documented in court records. That was about 1850

Daviss: In that log book there is reference of those that passed listed as resolutions or Death Angel logbook of the Church in Texas

alt: my vital records with photos of grave markers start aound 1816.

Seventies Sunshine: You know we should have a chat discussion Tuesday about Obituaries and death notices. That would be great. For beginners to intermediate researchers.

Daviss: Art did you take the pictures of all those grave markers

alt: Yep, sure did Daviss

Daviss: nice job alt

alt: thanks Daviss, it was easy... most are in the same cemetery LOL LOL

Daviss: lol @alt and add to that seventies how to clean off a marker
