Oklahoma Centennial Project(s)

From: Labeth Myers
DearMYRTLE,
I love getting your emails and have learned a lot from you. I feel especially fond of you because you are from the general area of some of my husband's family: The George W Pendarvis family, including his great aunt, Louisa Pendarvis, who lived in Bradenton. I was delighted to find this article in The Daily Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, OK, Sunday, Feb.12, 2006. I wish I was in good health so I could help with this project. I knew you would love to read this, too.

DearLABETH,
THANK-you for scanning the article titled BURIED MEMORIES by staff writer Ann DeFrange, which is now in the "pay-per-view" area of the newspaper's website. The article mentions 77 book "Oklahoma Centennial Project" each one an index to county cemeteries. If you'd like to learn more about publications in this project see:

It is there that I discovered the upcoming Oklahoma Land Tract Book Index to overcome the problem of land records filed only by land description. Once completed, you can search by name of purchaser. That's a LOT easier.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)

  1. I just happened upon this page. I am researching a Roberts family in Oklahoma. LaBeth Myers made a post on GenForum and I think we may be looking at the same family. She mentioned Cerelda C. Roberts. The names she list of the children match those that I am looking for. The family originated in Tennessee.


    Please contact me if anyone can help
    thank you
