The awesome all volunteer group from the Rootsweb Mailing Group that I am associated with has done it again. We've recently celebrated our one year anniversary for the death index we've been compiling from old newspapers in the Pittsburgh area. Yep, we've been combing the old newspapers from the last 200 years and the entries just keep on coming.
What would we do without the wonderful volunteers? (Did I mention these 46 super folks are fantastic in their commitment to the project?)
Just in case you missed it, our little project now has marriage and divorce sections, as well as our new military index with names from World War I.
Latest index numbers for marriages online (and available to all for free- well, maybe an occasional shout out from other researchers): 16,520
Latest index numbers for the divorce: 1083
Latest index numbers for the World War I military personnel index: 37, 324

Ahh, genealogy. The old marriages and happy times come alive just in time for Valentine's Day. After all, we needed them for our generation.
