Rich Funeral Home Database Recognized

The Rich Funeral Home database from the KHCPL website was recently spotlighted in the February 29 issue of the Weekly Genealogist, a publication of the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Here is what they had to say about us:
Rich Funeral Home, Indiana
This funeral home database is on the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library website. Howard County is located in central Indiana. Kokomo is its county seat. This database is an index to the records of the Rich Funeral Home, a family business, which was in operation from June 1893 through October 1956. The index was created from photocopies of the company’s records. The data fields in the alphabetical index include name of the deceased, record number, place of death, and notes. The notes field includes age at death, and abbreviations for the cemetery in which the deceased is buried. There is a chart at the end of the introduction page that provides a listing of burial dates and corresponding record numbers. There is also a key to the abbreviations used in the database. The original records for the Rich Funeral Home are in the possession of the Stout Funeral Home in Russiaville, Indiana.

We are honored to be recognized by the NEHGS.
