It has been a while since I posted a funeral card. The reason, I posted all the early years found in my mother-in-law’s scrapbook, and I am cautious about posting information on recent (2000 to present) deaths for privacy reasons.
I subscribe to Vita Brevis, a blog of AmericanAncestors.org (New England Historic Genealogical Society), and a recent blog by Lindsay Fulton listed 7 Vital Record Alternatives, which included the value of funeral cards for finding recent relatives.
I decided to return to the scrapbook to see if there were any pre-2000 funeral cards and I found a few. I will be posting those over the next few weeks. Lindsay followed that blog with one titled, “8 More Vital Record Alternatives.”
