I'm certain that -all- the obits and marriage info for the entire county
are not up on the Plaquemines website.....
certainly the ones I'm looking for aren't there.
I was asking where microfilms of the local paper can be found, because
even if you find something on line (as I did find one obit reference)
you still then have to find the paper to get the obituary. You also need
to realize that there is no reference on the page I found the obituary
reference on to what it actually IS. Unless you go through the
"backdoor" and find it by going through several links to what someone is
referring to as the "main obit page", you don't know what it is. I found
it by doing a search for the name GATHLENY on the usgenweb archives
search, which brings you to the page itself, which has NO REFERENCE to
what that file is!
I really don't understand why you are picking on me about this. I asked
a simple question, and luckily I have gotten an answer. Telling me to
look at the county webpage when I made clear that I found the original
reference there really isn't helping me much. I'm no novice to this
process, and I do host pages for the WorldGenWeb, so I'm very familar
with how county, state and country pages work. I admire the work you've
done in putting up information on the website, but it certainly doesn't
mean everything is up there, or that everything is explained the way it
should be for someone new to searching in this county.
I'm certain there are good people on this list and researching in this
county, but to just keep telling people to "look at the webpage" doesn't
answer every question.
