Docu-Challenge #2 - Funeral Card



DearREADERS,
In thinking about my maternal grandmother's funeral card for our current case study, how would you best cite it as a source? Consider that:
  • You are writing about this in an email to another researcher.
  • You obtained the scanned image of the original in my possession.
  • I am Frances' granddaughter, Pat (Player) Richley-Erickson.



Be sure to answer the following:
  1. How would you describe it?
  2. What can you tell about Frances from the information provided?
  3. What is missing?
  4. Which additional records might this lead you to review?

Write to Ol' Myrt, and give me your suggestions. This time, the randomly-awarded prize is 4 (count 'em four!) 512MG flash drives courtesy of our friends at Ages-Online.com. Send replies to Myrt@DearMYRTLE.com .

If I work this right, I might get some assistance in my research. [Very big grin!]

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)

  1. The decedent's closest friends and relatives who are unable to attend frequently send flowers to the viewing, with the exception of a Jewish funeral. learn more
