Funeral Card Sarah A. Hanks of Iowa 1842 - 1909
Funeral cards are an overlooked free genealogical resource. They often contain Birth and Death years and are a substitute for birth and death records (Vital Records). Now they are not a true substitute for vital records but it's a good place to start! To find out what are true Vital Records see Genealogy Without Sources is Mythology
Unfortunately these death records are scattered and there has not been a repository for funeral cards until now. I'm trying to create the best funeral card database on the net. If you have death records such as funeral cards, please give them a home by submitting them to Ancestors At Rest.

We know this is the right Sarah because she is also with husband George R. in the 1900 census for Iowa in Adair County, Grand River Township and her birthdate is given as November 1842.
