Many of you are familiar with the Browning Obituaries website. Previously it contained obituaries listed in the Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana newspapers. The site is being expanded with several new databases, which will make it one of the most valuable sites for genealogists and historians with any connection to southern Indiana, southern Illinois and beyond.
Added to the Browning Genealogy and Obituary Research is a Cemetery Database, which is being developed for Rose Hill Cemetery (Warrick County, Indiana), Snake Run (Gibson County, Indiana), New Salem (Vanderburgh County, Indiana) and James Parker (Spencer County, Indiana).
Also in the works is an Immigration Database for Vanderburgh and Warrick Counties, Indiana 1850 - 1920 and a Veteran Database of Vanderburgh and Pike Counties, Indiana for World War II soldiers and Posey County, Indiana for World War I soldiers.
In addition, the Genealogy and Obituary Research has expanded its holdings to include Gallatin County, Illinois 2003 - 2007 with additional years (back to 1950) coming within the next two years.
This website is one to be bookmarked and used regularly. Just because your family was from Kentucky, don't discount this website. Many folks migrated from western Kentucky to Evansville to work and ended up settling in this area.
