Abstracting Records


Deeds should be listed in full if at all possible and not hacked apart - sometimes space becomes a problem and they do have to be shorted, but the land descriptions are often taken out, which would possibly would lend to valuable information when pinpointing an exact spot of residence. 

Obituaries must be abstracted if they were published after 1930 - but never take out the dates, cemetery name and family names that are listed. Sometimes it is okay to publish the recent ones, but permission should be obtained from the person who owns the copyright on them.
