The heat is on!
My little death indexing project based on the old Pittsburgh and Allegheny Co, PA, newspapers is growing. We now have several hundred deaths from 1980 in it as well as some mining incidents. I guess you could say that folks are just dying to get in!!
All said, today's new upload has over 5000 new entries ----
bringing our death index entries up to 46,684!
The marriage index now has 11,400 happy couples with the "not so very happy" couples at 678.
And we still aren't even breaking a glisten! Of course, I'm sure the medicinal use of our ancestors' backyard industry helps!
I would be remiss if I didn't give a big "thanks" to the volunteers who are transcribing and assisting in getting the names into a spreadsheet.
Just in case you have missed the way to get to the death index project:
Ahh, genealogy. Ain't it grand!!
