A number of obituary and other point of death records have been added to our Free Databases recently.

One of our most popular databases is our Fort Wayne and Allen County Area Obituary Index, and local volunteer John Lawrence has filled in a number of gaps in that database by reviewing 19th and early 20th century newspapers and adding a total of 18,951 obituaries recently! One may search the database by first or last name (exact, Soundex and fuzzy search) or by date.

The Daviess County, Indiana Obituary Index has 2013 and 2014 entries added by Kay Hedrick, bringing the run from 1984 to 2014. This index also includes many entries from Martin, Pike and Knox Counties, as well as Daviess.

And the Genealogy Tracers African American Homegoing Programs continue to expand, now containing 4048 memorials with 19, 761 images, thanks to the Genealogy Tracers of Cleveland, Ohio, whose members are Alfreda Spratlen Barnes, Clancy Ware-Simpson, David Simpson, Carmine Vaughn Stewart.

Thanks to everyone for their time and effort! These databases would not exist without them!
