In 1956 death reports were not being digitized so it is not at all
surprising that your father is not listed in the SSDI. He wouldn't be unless his
death wasn't reported until 1962 or later, or unless a change was made to his
record in 1962 or later--which is unlikely.
I can't say why your mother isn't listed.
The $255 lump sum death payment (LSDP) used to be payable to certain family
members or whoever paid the funeral bill--but that has since been changed.
Now, in most cases, only th

- I have a Petition (1913) for my Grandpa Louis Pinkus that shows his
departure 4 March 1899 written as Mch from Liverpool and arrived 19 March
1899. The handwriting is very nice but all I can make of the name of the
ship is SCHOCH and then possibly t--an or t--un. A friend of mine who lives
in Liverpool checked it out for me in London I think. Couldn't find
anything remotely matching the name of the ship. That is g'pa's

I have forwarded your message to my BIL. He is a Simpson and know he has
done some research. His family may have come from some of that area. There
might be some from Tennessee in there too. Interestingly I have found that my
great great grandmother (from NC) was named Sarah Simpson Bolden - the daughter
of John Bolden. I have wondered for a long time about her middle name of
Simpson, but have been unable to find out why she has that middle name.

This refers to "compiled" works. So while the individual facts,

used (a couple sentences) of someone else's creation without

I can't seem to find an on-line database for searching
Obituaries in Indianapolis, or even to search many of

hill). Interment and gravefinder.com did not have
many Indianapolis cemetery listings either.
Does anyone know where I can look to see when John
Mack also known by McNamara died? All I know is that
he was born in Ohio in the 1860's (maybe around Feb
1864?) but the date is different on every cen

I blogged about it in my blog:
The article was published in the Newburyport (MA) Herald, 16 July 1816.

- What part of the country is this newspaper from? Perhaps it's a
church denominational publication. I found some good information
from a church paper in Kentucky that included the death of a person
I'd been looking for in Iowa. Her spouse had moved to Iowa and sent
a notice of her death back to a church paper published in Kentucky
where they'd lived prior to moving to Iowa. This was in the 1880's
as I recall.
I found this particular paper in a small town library.

- does anyone have access to this?
I am looking for the marriage record of Charles Wesley Dunheiffer (aka Dunifer/Duniver) to Lula A., last name unknown.
it would be between 1870 and 1880, as he is single in 1870 and married in 1880.
they are in Charleston in 1880, and I'm not sure whether they married in this area or not, so I'd really appreciate a check for the record, at least then I'll know what to do next.
thank you for your assistance.

- Have been doing genealogy for over 36 years, and when I get a request for data on my families, I send just enough to see just how interested that person is. IF I get an acknowledgement and some data on that family in return, I share more.
This has resulted in some longterm correspondence, more complete family groups, and many new friends.

contributed or scanned or anything. This is people
