Re: [About_Alfords] Georgia Obituaries
- Sharon,Thank you so much for sending these obituaries from Georgia! I'm always begging for obits, especially old ones because they often are genealogically valuable. I especially value obituaries of Alfords that don't include the Alford name, like two of yours. They are very difficult to find.I will include these in the next update of Georgia Obituaries. In the meantime, how do you feel about typing them and emailing the text back to me?!I could not find FindAGrave.com memorials for these three women. If you make memorials for them, you can then request gravestone photos.If you have any more Alford obituaries, you can send them directly to me. Also, if you happen to have photos of any of these people, I'd like to add them to the obituaries.
