Vitals Newspapers

This section will include births and marriages notices that appeared in newspapers. At the moment, I have only a small number organised, so they will appear only on this page. Once the collection grows out of this space, I’ll divide it into their own pages for easier downloading and organisation.

The short death notices will appear in the obituary section to avoid confusion.

At times, the information in these notices are scant. Still, I’ll create an entry in the Book of Names to help fully identify the individuals mentioned.

Links to sources are noted below.
