Genealogy Exclusive: B. Kolb & Sons Ledger (1925-1932)
It doesn't look like a ledger from the outside; that's because it's actually a three-ring binder. The original ledgers must have fallen apart, as the ledger pages have been three-hole punched and stored in binders.
What I find most interesting about this ledger is that the listings include the burial permit numbers and dates, some of which go back to the mid 1800's. There are also a few with burial plot diagrams drawn on the page.
As with all of the resources in the Genealogy Today Subscription Data collection, the names indexes may be searched free of charge. To see a listing of the surnames from this ledger and/or search for a specific name, visit B. Kolb & Sons Funeral Ledger. A subscription for full access is only $32.95 per year.
This is the second handwritten ledger we've made available. The first was Lynn & Freeman Funeral Ledger (1926-1934) which was posted last week. Additional ledgers will be released in the coming weeks.
