Subject: [IRELAND-OBITS] A new non-commercial website - www.familynotices.org

Posted with the kind permission of the Listowner.
I have just launched www.familynotices.org which is a totally non-commercial
& privately-owned site and I hope to attract postings from the past as well
as new social events.
Following the death of a close family member, I was infuriated and worse, at
the outrageous charges the local newspaper made for posting just a small
It made me think through the whole 'death notices' thing and I pondered how
some persons are at their lowest ebb when trying to attend to the small
details. I felt that possibly many were either disturbed at the whole
horrible process and therefore would say "Yes" to anything just to be able
to end the telephone conversation, or they were suffering the modern-day
piety/mawkishness and want to spend as much as possible 'to show how much
they cared...' - regardless the 'local rags' love it!
So I created FamilyNotices.org - which is an on-line repository for all
notices of Births, Deaths, Marriages, Engagements, Anniversaries and Missing
This has the advantage of being world-wide, unlike the 'local rag' and
better still - is free. Also it doesn't get thrown in the rubbish bin after
a quick read!
Please feel free to help yourself and post anything which is relevant and
appropriate - and it doesn't have to be current. Details of 'Auntie Millie
born in 1896' is just as relevant as a modern-day wedding notice.
If you like it, please tell your friends
.........& if you don't just tell me!
Cheers for now,
FamilyNotices.org - the free online repository
for all notices of Births, Deaths, Marriages,
Engagements, Anniversaries and Missing Persons
Doing it for free - unlike the newspapers !
