How many times did you watch your parents read the evening newspaper? I know my parents liked to sit down after dinner and spend hours reading every page. What precious memories..... of those pages rattling, of papa asking for more coffee, of mama drifting off to sweet slumber.......
You can still take hours to read the past newspapers and glean tidbits of information which will lead you down your genealogy past.
In case you haven't had the time to peruse the old Pittsburgh newspapers, a wonderful group of volunteers has been doing it for you!
We've been indexing the old Pittsburgh newspapers for deaths, marriages, and divorces. The dates we have indexed can be seen at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paallent/ . Links from this site will take you to the indexed names.
Ahhh, genealogy. It's a great day for those of us with Irish roots to tip our hats while we look for some gold under the old rocks!
