- May 22, 2013Rosemary,Thank you so much for all of your hard work over the years with the obits. You have helped so many of us so much.I should follow your lead with the quilting, but I like genealogy as much as I like quilting and there never seems to be enough time for both. But I probably ought to at least finish the quilt that has been sitting here for a couple of years only needing the binding to be finished...haha!Nancy----- Original Message -----From: Rosemary ErmisSent: Sunday, May 19, 2013 9:20 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.
