In Response To: Memorial Service ideas ()
Because I wanted the funeral program to later be used as a source of genealogical information, one of the things I included in the obituary for both my father and mother was the name of their oldest known relative, year of birth, where they were born and year of death. Also make sure you include the names of all of the siblings with death years for those who died prior to the deceased.
Finally, be sure to include the maiden names of all female relatives.
