This valuable book provides a single source that denotes the deaths of local people but also of those who have moved away from Union Parish, Louisiana. Many of the obituaries within this book contain pertinent details of death including date, place and cause of death.
This book is an excellent resource for anyone, African American or Caucasian, who seek to find information on deceased ancestors during the period covered in the book. The author has done superb work in transcribing and compiling the death notices which are alphabetized and includes an index. There is no need to physically go to Farmerville, Louisiana to research The Gazette death notices or peruse them online. Barbara has it all in her new book and you will not be disappointed. I am confident that seekers who are researching their family history in the Union Parish area of Louisiana will find this book a treasure that will be cherished for many years to come.
