Some things I try to copy at the bottom of every obit I post:
1) I'm not related and didn't know the person. I do this to repay a number of people who did lookups for me, in a general way. They almost never need a lookup in Stanislaus County, but others do. If you would like to return the favor, in the same general way, I suggest the GenForum site for your county. There are usually unanswered obit requests.
2) I’ll send you the paper copy of the microfilm if you send me your address via my profile. This is a limited time offer, since I've been doing this for a while and the ones no one wants clutter up my genealogy cubbyhole. If I don't hear from you in 30 days or so, out it goes.
