Deaths and Dispatches
Funeral cards and obituaries are not a modern invention, such mournful messages accompanied the lives of our ancestors too. For a family researcher these can be useful genealogical resources, as they can contain valuable information about the life of a deceased person, and are sometimes overlooked.
Perhaps you would like to share these sad records from your family history? If you have a photo of a funeral or memorial card, a transcription or clipping from a newspaper, a copy of a telegram or a letter, an elegy or a dedication, or even a transcription from the endpapers of a family bible, that you would like to include in this database, then please contact the moderators of Lost Ancestors via our contact page.
