We all know that obituaries can be a great source of information about our ancestors. This week I’ve been working on my GILLEN line and have located several obituaries that I didn’t previously have. These have all been located on newspapers.com, my favorite newspaper source.
Here are the obituaries I’ve located and their relationship to me. I hope they can be helpful to other family members.
