What a treasure this will be to people doing family research to have these all stored online.I have over 21,000 emails in my inbox and I estimate that 80% are obits from you that I haven't read yet so it's going to take me quite a while to go thru them.Thanks again.Roland BeausoleilSent: Sunday, May 19, 2013 10:20 PMSubject: [TexasCzechs] Czech obits
Hello Texas Czechs,
The last of the “Z” obits went out tonight. I have about 400 more obits left. I am still researching online at night and checking the newspapers and funeral home every week. One of my projects is to go once a week to the Fayette County Library in La Grange (down the road) and go through the La Grange Journal searching for Czech obits. The newspaper begins in 1880, and I have typed eight obits from it so far. Going through a newspaper on microfilm is rather time-consuming as I have to check each page/frame.
As a result, do not be alarmed if there are days when I only send out 3 or 5 or no obits. I want to make some quilt tops and quilt them. Newsprint is black and white. Working with colors and design will be a fun change for me.
