Volunteer needed to submit obits from Tunkhannock

Hello everyone,
For several years now, I've been submitting basic info taken from obituaries in the New Age-Examiner. It only takes MINUTES a week or month, and it is very simple. The extracted data is kept in the database of the Obituary Daily Times web site <http://www.rootsweb.com/~obituary/>, and is then searchable by anyone. This is a very valuable source of genealogical data and will be far into the future.

If you would like to take on this easy opportunity to help other researchers, please write to Gene Ulrich at <ulricher@hotmail.com> and tell him the name of the newspaper and the state in which you live (doesn't have to be PA -- I live in TX but subscribed to the paper). Please let him know that I suggested it, too.

Please write to me if you have any questions, and thanks,
Janice
