Funeral Notice Sent to Mr & Mrs Frank Gillette of New York
Funeral cards are an overlooked free genealogical resource. They often contain both the Birth date and Death date and can be used as a substitute for birth and death records ( Vital Records ). Now from a technical point of view they are not a true substitute for vital records. But it's a good place to start. If you interested in what things qualify as a true Vital Records there is a good article at the Olive Tree.
Unfortunately these valuable resources are scattered and there has not been a single repository for this valuable resource until now. It is my hope to create the best funeral card database on the net.
Funeral Notice Sent to Mr & Mrs Frank Gillette of New YorkThis card, like many old postal items, catches a bit of history and profound human experience over the years. Address to Mr & Mrs Frank Gillette, East Main Street, Penn Lane, N.Y. [I think is is Penn Yan, Yates Co. NY] it simply reads on the back:
"Mar. 21, 1913 Mother died this morning Funeral at Penn Lan, Monday, Mar. 24, at 2:30 PM 214 Wagner St. Ernest Chapman."
There is no postmark or indication that the card was ever actually mailed.
CENSUSName: Ernest Chapman
Age in 1910: 38
Estimated Birth Year: 1871
Birthplace: New York
Home in 1910: 3-WD PENN YAN, YATES, New York
Here are the other Chapmans in the 1910 census index for Penn Yan. Most likely "Mother" is either Marion E. Chapman b. circa 1853 or Fred Champman's wife
