Wordless Wednesday: Death Index and More from Old Pittsburgh Newspapers

Just a quick update of our old Pittsburgh area death notices--

Tis a group effort started some five years ago by a dedicated group of volunteers through our rootsweb mail list.  While the project has taken a long break now due to other commitments in life,  I am pleased to announce:

Death - over 106,6000 entries
Marriage- over 24,000 couples
Divorce- over 1400
WWI Military Personnel with over 73k entries
Civil War:  The men of Company E

To check to see if your loved one is on the list, please go to:

In addition, we also have 1864 Tax Returns which were published in the newspaper.  Can you imagine that happening today?

There are also WWI articles pertaining to Pittsburgh area men, House of Refuge information, Poor House articles, Veterans Schedule and other transcriptions done by loving hands, although tired ones, of our volunteers.

Take time to check it out:

Why, it's almost enough to render you speechless!  Enjoy!

Ahhh, genealogy. Gotta love it especially when you help someone you don't know find a smile.
