Even though we've been cold, wet, and sometimes stranded during the raging winter weather, my volunteer research efforts have been roaring on.
The death/marriage/divorce indices that I coordinate for the old Pittsburgh newspapers have given rise to another new index.
It's really cool to announce not only the World War I men of Allegheny County whose names were listed in the local newspaper, but I also get to send kudos to Norm M for setting up a webpage which details the issues of the newspapers that have been indexed by Lynn B.
Go to the site to see some of the over 30,000 hometown military personnel names and activities. If you've got Pittsburgh area roots from that time period, you may be in for a special treat. Even if you don't have roots in the area, you can just spend some time reading about World War I.
Ahh, genealogy. What great reading for a winter day.
