Melissa, that funeral collection was interesting. I'm always interested in seeing how different databases display info. It helps me think about different ways I might search for funeral records and also that I can't approach their existence with a negative frame of mind. I really don't know where or what I might find if I don't try.

I ran across an interesting group of records over the weekend. It is the Atlanta Funeral Homes Program Collection.

Here is the description from the site: Over 3300 funeral programs documenting the funeral services of Georgia residents, primarily from the Atlanta, Georgia area. Most of the programs are from services held during the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. A majority of the programs are from churches in the Atlanta, Georgia area, with a few programs from other states such as South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Michigan, New Jersey, and New York, among others. The programs typically contain a photograph of the deceased, an obituary, a list of surviving relatives, and the order of service. The collection provides extensive genealogical information about the deceased, including birth and death dates, maiden names, names of relatives, past residences, and place of burial. Alongside this genealogical information, the obituaries provide a rich source of local history.

Hi Lynn, 

Would be nice to get some discussion going here not just about the course but about interesting things we're finding in our records or trials and tribulations finding them.

Have fun in the social media course. I didn't think I'd like it because I'm not crazy about social media but it really made me understand how helpful it can be. Now I just have to crawl out from under my rock and get out there!

I'm taking the Social Media class and decided to look into this group as part of an assignment.  Looking forward to learning more about this group.

Tamara, I'd try emailing   admin@GenealogicalStudies.com   or calling   1-800-580-0165. They could connect you with the person who can help you start one. They've always been super helpful to me no matter the question. If you email it may take a day or so for them to reply depending on what event's going on in the genealogy world.
