    St. Joseph Public Library Obituary Database

    The St. Joseph Public Library has been indexing obituaries for the St, Joseph News-Press and St. Joseph Gazette. The Obituary Database has been down for maintenance for quite a long time. I actually wrote them a few months back to ask if it was gone for good. Thankfully, that turns out not to be the case, and it’s back!

    Not all years are indexed, but it’s a great resource, especially for those “dead years” between 1985 and 2010 for the News-Press.

    What’s New in July

    Lots of stuff happened in July. Well, I think it’s lots — you might not. 🙂

    The Morgan County MOGenWeb project now resides in three places, which is going to be confusing for the time being. The Rootsweb site is back up and while Rootsweb was down, most of the material was moved to the server. Once the material has been harvested from Rootsweb, and once I can get logged into, those will be deleted and redirected, so please update your bookmarks.

    I spent the better part of July, as with most of the past months, working on the St. Mary’s Cemetery in Hurlingen, Buchanan County, Missouri. I could probably work on this cemetery for another year and still not call it “finished.”

    Monica, as always, was busy indexing newspapers and we have these gems from her:
