Obituary search. 2012.

I came across an ambitious work—alphabetical lists of names from newspaper obituaries, and thought i should post it here. There is a note saying, “The following information was acquired from index cards prepared and microfilmed by the Hawaii State Archives.  The following information is subject to human error. Indexing was of full obituaries only, not death notices.”

And they further state that, “All are incomplete, till I find more time to work on them.” I totally understand how that goes…

I think that these sorts of listings are important, as it allows you to browse when you aren’t exactly sure of who you are looking for, and maybe that would draw connections you never would have imagined.

One of my dream lists would be one master list, of births, deaths, and marriages, along with which newspaper and issue (and page) that information came from!
