Panning for gold

Frequently, I comment that obituaries are “a gold mine”  of information. Click on this link and read the obituary. I was able to document the parents, husband, and ten children and their spouses. I was able to stretch beyond the immediate family to grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Gratefully, a cousin has subscriptions to newspapers and funeral homes and can promptly share valuable information. Otherwise, it might be many years before Ancestry publishes the information.

I am wealthy because I constantly find “gold” nuggets.
