Hi Colleen,

What a wonderful gift! My grandmother clipped obits and human interest
articles from Memphis-area papers paying tribute to very elderly
individuals (mostly 100+ years old). Last year, I placed an index of
names (the person, any relatives, etc) onto the TNGenWeb site

Take a look at:

and see if that would interest you. Also, Nancy Trice has Mattie's
Scrapbook of Obituaries on the Hopkins Co, KY website:

Hope that helps a little!
