Genealogy Exclusive: Lynn & Freeman Funeral Ledger (1926-1934)

For the first time, I've transcribed data from an original handwritten Funeral Record ledger book into the Genealogy Today Subscription Data collection. In addition, images from the ledger pages will be made available to subscribers as a result of a recent system upgrade. While the ledger itself is not labeled, papers found within tie it to the Lynn & Freeman funeral home in Portsmouth, Ohio. This ledger contains entries from 1926 to 1934, with a few from 1917. Most of the entries are legible, although overall I'd say the handwriting is sloppy in general.

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 Lynn & Freeman Funeral Ledger. A subscription for full access is only $32.95 per year.

Additional ledgers from other funeral homes will be added to the collection in the coming weeks.
