Obituaries are a “gold mine” of information !!

I’ve said it before but it bears repeating: “Obituaries are a ‘gold mine’ of information.” Here is an illustration: Eva Nannie Garber was already documented in my Ancestry database. There were no sources that indicated she had children. I just received the obituary for Galen L. Myers which lists Eva and Harold as his parents. Galen is my 7th cousin one-time removed and “yes,” there is “Frantz” in his ancestry.
