There is not in the press any reading so improving as the "obits"
...I doubt very much indeed whether any one could read obituaries every day for a year and remain a bad man or woman.
~ Robert C. Holliday
The long-term plan WAS to post obituaries/abstracts for anyone who was born, married, died or is buried in Adams County.
There are over 12,000 obits posted on the INGenWeb Obits site.
Obituaries will continue to be posted in the cemeteries of Adams, Wells & Jay counties (use the search tool on the home page).
The newest site is hosted by google docs
We will continue to add obits to the appropriate Adams, Jay & Wells cemeteries.
Many thanks to Jim Cox, Marge Counterman, Jane Edson, Mike Horn, Karin King, Nola Rains, Bill Rice, Sharon Schaffner, Janet Torson and everyone else who contributed obituaries to the index.
If you have an obituary that you would like to share, please email it to Jim Cox
for inclusion in the Obituary Files.
