In Response To: Re: Chattanooga, TN Obituary Request ()
Through your very helpful suggestions and the assistance of a genealogist in Chattanooga, I have managed to obtain copies of Corine and Irene's obituaries, from which I learned the names of their survivors (my dad's first cousins). This same kind genealogist looked up the addresses of the these survivors in the most recent city directory. One seems to be alive, so I wrote her a letter and included photos of my Great-grandfather (her grandfather), grandfather (her uncle) and my father (her cousin) hoping that this would break the ice and encourage her to contact me. I also learned where they are buried and obtained photos of their headstones through the cemetery's administrator! Thank you all for your suggestions. Finger crossed!
