Over the past several months I have busying myself with transcribing Church program obituaries as well as obits found in the local newspaper.
Once the transriptions are completed, I add them to Findagrave.com. I came across this website about some years and have been an active contributor for the past 6 years.
If there is a clear photograph, it’s also scanned and included on the page as well. So far, transcriptions have been completed for over 70 obituaries with another 200+ to go. It’s doubtful if my contributions were ever catch up to the 200,000 plus added by some members. View my Findagrave.com contributions here.
The next step is to add these transcriptions to the Afrigeneas Death Records Database. Afrigeneas is the preimier African American Genealogy Research website on the internet.
