Re: [jacksongenealogy] Kind of a off topic - The Sentinel's new obit policy
- Regarding Obits--I just moved to Huntsville from Iowa about 5 months ago.
One thing I found "amusing" (?!) about the obits here--they don't tell what
people died of/from! I keep thinking how helpful that would be for
genealogists......where I was from they always said cause of death or at
least something like "natural causes".
Oh the paper charging for obits--that was the policy if it was after a
certain time span or the family wanted to vary from the standard guidelines
of the newspaper.
