I recently developed this. This Sunday, I began doing something strange. I started reading the obituaries. I used to only get the Sunday paper for coupons. However, this Sunday, I went thru the obits thinking, “Maybe there’s someone in here that I know”. Uh..NO! My ancestors are in North Carolina and I live in Florida. My family in Florida consists of my immediate relatives. That’s it!

Now, I need to figure out a way to get a copy of Daily Advance at my house on a weekly basis….hmmm….

Picture courteously of JMK Books.

  1. One idea I had recently was to go through the obits and put people in findagrave. I’ve only browsed obits a few times, and have only added people maybe 2 or 3 times, but it could be something to make your obitis productive 🙂

  2. I’m going to NC in August for my family reunion and I plan on going to one of the cemetaries to take pictures and post them to findagrave. But, I didn’t think about my obits.

  3. Hi, I’m new to your blog but I think it’s wonderful that you’re doing this. I was just talking to someone the other day about how slavery makes it nearly impossible for African-Americans to trace our heritage and how painful that realization can be. Keep up this worthwhile work.
