We have now reached our goal of 10,000 obituaries on this site. This remarkable feat has been accomplished in approximately seven years. Thanks to our volunteers for their dedication to the project, especially the two who have entered thousands, typing each obituary individually. Our obituaries have come from many sources, some were glued to index cards by volunteers years ago. Others were pasted in old scrapbooks or old textbooks. We obtained some from the Ada Ruth Sayre and Betty Kessel McIntyre obituary collections. Any old newspaper we found, we searched it for obits. Obits were taken from the microfilm at the libraries. These obits span over 125 years--a few from the 1880's and a few current ones. We are still hoping to find someone with more obituaries (pre 2000) they would be willing to lend us to put on this site.
