Today is June 27th. On this date in 1919, 48-year old Mary Lavinia (Kelly)
Ahern of Philadelphia died and was buried in St. Denis' cemetery.
See Records of St. Agatha's Catholic Church, Philadelphia, PA at

The Ahern obituaries page has now passed the 3,375 mark. The earliest
new obituary is for one-year-old Joseph O'Hearn, jr., of Bridgeport,
Connecticut, 25 August 1920. The most recent new obituary is for Zita
Madeline (Cox) Ahern of West Yarmouth, Massachusetts, 19 June 2007.

The Ahern researchers page has been updated, but many email addresses no
longer work. Please check
and see if you have an old posting there that needs to be updated.

Societies conference in Boston last year.
