Why This Site?

I believe obituaries are great tools for finding dates and places.  Clues to where the real information lies.  However, since facts for the obituary was usually given by a loved ones, usually they gloss over events in the deceased one’s life.  Sometimes they sugar-coat events and sometimes they just tell the basics.  

It’s not my intention to bring up dirt, but rather tell the whole story.  After all, these are my ancestors and nobody wants their ancestor to be portrayed in a negative way!

I would like to think that each person would like to have their story told.  After all, what they did in their life is what makes them real. . . . and makes me who I am today!

I have files and files full of obituaries. . . .and I love them all!
