Where O Where Can the Obituary Be?
Genealogists often spend time searching for obituaries of their ancestors. Local newspapers are a great first place to look--however there are quite a few other places one should look.
The obituary on the right was published in the Christian Advocate, published in St. Louis, Missouri, nearly 100 miles from where good old Wesley Jones died. Had our search stayed in the local area we would have missed this wonderful writeup. An article on our site discusses places to search for obituaries so that they are not overlooked.
