Obituaries Now Available Online…

Link

When family members pass away, a lot of work goes into creating the obituary and funeral programs to help memorialize them.  Often we distribute them to family and friends that were not able to attend the service or even keep them for ourselves.

The programs themselves house a lot of history and I wanted a way to keep them all together so anyone can view them.  You can now view family obituaries and funeral programs online.  The Obituaries are housed in the “Archives” section of the website.  This section will only be complete if you add to it, so if you have any at home that you would like to add, please do so by completing the Census Update form on the site.

Everyone knows we have the Blabbermouth as a tool for family bragging and gossiping.  What we do not have is a place to keep up with our family census records, until now.

A new census form has been added to the Forms and Requests section of the site, where you can chronicle the important dates in your immediate family.  We will then compile the information and add it to our family tree.

Please click the link and complete the form, it will only take a minute of your time!

Are you guys paying attention?
