I know this message has been posted before, but I wanted to post it again because I have been answering many posts about it.
The necrology file is a list of all death notices in the Cleveland papers for the following years: 1833, 1847-1848, 1850-1975. Sure beats going to the library. The website can be found at http://www.cpl.orghttp://www.cpl.org Click on Database and Links Library. History and Geography. Go down to Genealogy and Click. Go down to Cleveland Necrology File and Click. Make sure you put this in your Favorites so you don't have to do the previous steps every time. You can search by specific name or you can search by keyword. Search by specific name such as Doe, John will give you only John Doe death notices. Search by Keyword (Example: John Doe) and it will bring up all death notices that have John and Doe within in it. This has been a wonderful site for me. I have obtained more death notices by using the keyword search (which then leads me in many more directions such as brothers, sister, aunts, uncles, etc.)
