Do You Know that you can search just the Obituaries on the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? You can narrow your search by including a key word in the cemetery name or a township name in addition to the surname you search. Then select the Find All Words option.
You'll also find obituary and other newspaper clippings using Clippings partition. Additional clippings can be found in the Birth, Marriage, and some other partitions. 

Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade" or business.  All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and  for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries

Three Blossburg Men Found Dead

The badly decomposed bodies of Stanley Kolanda, 23; Lawrence Kolanda, 21 brothers, and Tophlia Lazeski, 21, were found Aug. 25 in a lower floor bedroom of an apartment at 357 ½ West Second street, in Elmira. Coroner Walter H. Byrne declared the deaths were accidental, due to escaping illuminating gas. The odor of gas led to the discovery of the bodies. Miss Helen L. Roper, daughter of Edwin K. Roper, owner of the apartment, visited the place Monday, noticed the gas fumes and reported the fact to her father. Police were notified and they attempted to force a back door of the apartment but were unsuccessful. They also noticed the gas fumes. Using a flashlight, Patrolman John Devlin looked through a window and saw a human leg on the bed. The front door then was forced and the gruesome discovery made. Mr. Roper stated that he went to the apartment Aug. 23 to collect the rent. He failed to gain admission and thought the men were away. The trio had been living there about two weeks, renting a “cooking room” and a bedroom. Coroner Byrne investigated and found a jet turned on in one room and gas escaping from the kitchen stove. He gave a verdict of accidental death. Search of the rooms showed that the men had been employed at the Kennedy Valve Manufacturing Company foundry. Their homes were in Blossburg. – Wellsboro Agitator, September 3, 1924
