Thank you for the information you provided, I was able to obtain the
obits for Virginia nelson and her husband Clarence Malm from
Dansville, Livingston, NY. I am now trying to contact their children
listed in the obits. You have a wonderful website and it is providing
a great service to genealogists trying to trace family members.
Congratulations to the community. Roy Arndt.Tuk sa myket."
