The County sites are back up. And here I was thinking no one ever uses them since Monica and Justin are the only contributors. But lo and behold, they are out there. Who knew.

The underlying problem hasn't been resolved. So if you find dead links or things that don't work, just use the back button.

Monica Schirmer Eshelman has been on a mission to index the obituaries and death notices in Buchanan County newspapers. Unfortunately, there is currently a problem with Google Newspapers which prevents further work on this project.

Please contact Monica directly if you have questions about these.
