  1. Dear Laura. Thank you for your dedication to genealogy. I have been searching for my great-grandfather’s obituary for years with no luck from any websites or libraries. Then, I randomly stumbled upon this very page during a Google search of his name and, voila, there was his obituary — Joseph S. Umberger. Thanks to your fine work, you helped me find a missing piece of family research. I am very grateful and I look forward to browsing the rest of your site to see who else I may know hidden among your research.
    Warm regards.
