Yesterday we launched two new projects, Kent, England, Tyler Index to Wills and California State Library WWI Soldier Death Announcements.
The Tyler Index to Wills contains a lot of fun records. As many of you know Frank Watt Tyler indexed many genealogically relevant records and this one is a treasure. There are pages with descendancy charts, will abstracts and other records. It is rated Average due to the handwriting challenges and variance in record types.
And the California Soldier Death Announcements is a heart wrenching project. The newspaper clippings contain the details of death announcements received by the family and of local soldiers listed in the Death Lists. You will need to read through the entire clipping to gather information but in general it doesn’t take long to get through an image set.
