CD: Obituaries and Death Related Items Abstracts from the Mendon Dispatch of Mendon, Adams County, Illinois, 1877-1905 - Mrs. Joseph J. Beals Sr. and Mrs. Sandra Kirchner. While conducting their own genealogical research in the early newspaper issues, Mrs. Beals and Mrs. Kirchner realized that other genealogists might be interested in the wealth of family names and interesting information they were discovering. Accordingly they created several volumes of alphabetical listings. Most of the Mendon Dispatch obituary abstracts are a couple of lines long and include the name of the deceased, age and cause of death. Many, however, are much more detailed and identify surviving relatives, service to the community and church affiliation. Probate records including the appointment of estate executors, constitute most of the other death related items. All listing include the newspaper's publication date and, usually, the original headline. (1997), 2005, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and Mac, 470 pp. 101-CD3493 ISBN: 0788434934
