================================================= Notes I try to copy into all of the obits I look up:
The funeral home in question is still in business. A web-based telephone book such as http://www.superpages.com/http://www.superpages.com/ will tell you their current address, if you'd like to write for records.
I'll send you a copy of the obituary if you send me your postal address privately.
I do these to pay back people who have done favors for me and didn't need anything done for them in my county. If you have the time, energy and inclination to do likewise, look at the GenForum board for your county.
