Genealogy Documents IV - Page Text Content

S: Ancestral Genealogy Research of Documents, Letters, Obituaries, Wills, etc. from the Year 1900 through the Year 1999.

FC: BOOK FOUR | Ancestral Genealogy Research of Documents, Letters, Obituaries, Wills, etc. from the Year 1900 through the Year 1999. Author: Irene Paret Weeks

1: This book contains copies of old letters, obituaries, newspaper articles, wills, etc. on our ancestors dating from the year 1900 through the year 1999.

2: About the making of this book (Book Four): The binder containing the information that was used for this book contained original letters, documents, wills, newspaper articles, etc. on the family. I have tried to put the items in chronological order. The binder used did contain some copies of documents instead of the original. This is because I did not have access or ownership of the originals and had to make copies. I obtained some of these documents from family members both close and distant but the majority of these documents were obtained from Universities, Libraries, Churches, the Internet and from my travels researching the family. There will be some caption notes or transcriptions where possible to explain a document and some are self-explanatory. Some of the old letters were very hard to read. Author: Irene Paret Weeks (Lord), September, 2012
