Without Genealogy, Life Would Be Boring


The Faye McMinn Genealogical Research Center of the Pittsburg Camp County Public Library received the following request:
"I am hoping you can direct me in the right direction to find a final piece of documentation that will permit me to submit an application to DAR."

Our AWESOME VOLUNTEER responded with the information the lady requested, finding it in the newly archived copies of the Pittsburg Gazette Digitization Project. This digitization project continues to benefit researchers daily!

Here is the message she received back:
"I think the obituary you have provided will be exactly what I need!  I cannot thank you enough!
You are a rock star!  I'm so impressed!  You are amazing!  Thank you so much!"

We think she was happy!

The Takeaway:
#1 - We have some awesome genealogy volunteers!
#2 - The digitization project was and is successful. If you've not visited them yet, here is how you get there:
