Funeral Card Friday
I've come across a number of mentions of collections of databases of Funeral Cards lately. One is the Drouin Collection, though their funeral (obituary) cards are part of their subscription database. To learn more about how to use them, and their collection as a whole, be sure to visit their pathfinder. Ancestors At Rest has an online index available of a large collection of funeral cards as well.
The collection about which I'm most excited is a small collection that has recently been added to the Oakville Images database at the Oakville Public Library. I've been cleaning out the unused cabinets in the Oakville Room at the Central Branch and came across an envelope filled with just under a dozen funeral cards for the area dating back to the early 1900s. Feel free to take a look!
