What a wonderful resource, of which I was unaware. I was able to find the death notice of my gggrandmother, which I will now be able
to send for the death cert and hopefully find her maiden name. I just love this group!
>I want to thank all of you on this list that have submitted transcriptions of the obits and marriages from these newspapers to the
Philly PAGenWeb Archives site. I know it takes time to transcribe them, and your efforts are appreciated. Here is a link to just
the obits, which has grown quite a bit the past few months:
>At least half of the submissions overall to the Archives site came from the great people on this list! If anyone else would like
to submit the obits you have (pre-1923 due to copyright laws) or any other documents, just put them in a text file or type them in
an email message to me, and I'll add them to the site and make sure they are advertised in the Archives Newsletter. Hopefully, one
day, this will be a complete resource - free and available 24-hours a day.
>PS. I certainly don't want to overlook the growth of the city directory additions:
