October is Family History Month.
I’m often awed by the genealogical clues hidden in obituaries, which is why I post them here and share them on Find A Grave.
The image on the left is a snip from the Deaths column that appeared on page 20 of the Chicago Daily News on October 7, 1912.
Most of these notices have been shared on Find A Grave as well. To quote the Ancestry Insider, “Find A Grave just keeps getting better and better.” I couldn’t agree more!
I encourage you to make Find A Grave one of your staple* sources for family history research. It’s a treasure trove of genealogical clues and more.
Celebrate Family History Month with your family – create new memories to share in October next year!
