CENSUS REPORTS

 

UPDATED JANUARY 25, 2014

 

I have found a site http://obits.eons.com/local that gives birth and death dates sorted by death dates beginning in the 1950s. Another site http://www.findagrave.com gives dates and in many cases a photo of the gravestone. IÕve just kinda stuck the info in where I could, so thatÕs where those little dates and notes came from.
