In Reply to: Obit look-up? by Phyllis of 999

Phyllis, I checked with the Harrison Daily Times and they do have archives that go back to the early beginning of the paper. The Times was established in 1876, so your g-g-grandmothers obit might be there. I don't expect that your g-g-grandfathers would be since he died 10 years before the paper started. They tell me it is a joint effort between the Times and Boone Co. Library. You pick up the microfilm at the Times office, drive or walk 2 blocks down the street to the library and view them there. The reason why I say walk, they tell me they now require you to leave your D L with them. Seems as though someone is failing to return the film. Isn't that awful. Bob
