Some of our previous updates:
Vietnam War Casualties; List of Cemeteries; WW2 casualties
We're looking to add the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well
as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or
readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper
gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and
anything in between - in short, the data you used to build your family tree (rather than the tree itself since
we don't have the space or manpower to accept gedcoms and trees)
