As you know (or at least you do now,) I spearheaded a project to index old Pittsburgh newspapers vital statistics in January. I trust that this project will be appreciated over time by those genealogy buffs who are searching for their Pittsburgh area roots.
Update as of Thursday, May 19:
36065 death entries
3865 couples announce wedded bliss
446 couples are not so happy (divorce)
386 photo entries
If you are new to genealogy, then please realize that there is an immense amount of time and effort given to the cause by the volunteers. We do the best we can. Yes, sometimes errors and typos happen. We do correct them when they are brought to my attention.
The treasure chest of genealogy love going into this project will help you in your quest to learn more. Just remember, this is not a substitute for going and digging around in the archives or libraries in the area. While I enjoy gleaning more family tidbits from the comfort of my home, I love going to Pittsburgh and honoring my family while I tend to their graves, visit with cousins or just walk the land that my ancestors walked.
