I have recently discovered two books that we can offer for sale. One is a Hard copy of the 1900 Warrick Co Census Index and the other is Vol 2 Cemetery book consisting of Greer and Hart twps. We are also considering a re-print of Cemetery Books but must have 10-12 buyers committed before the printing. The price will depend on response but if you post it, let them know we will be responding to their questions and conducting a pre-publication sale prior to the actual re-printing. Please post these notices or e-mail any questions you may have about this note.
Thanks, Sharon Patmore
The content comes from a book my mother has. It was probably made about
1880 based on some of my family history. The front pages were missing,
so I am not really sure of the name. Each page was scanned and the
pictures were as clear as I could get them. Since a few pages are not as
clear, I have made duplicate pages of them to try and get a better
picture. It is not indexed. The price is $5.00 with shipping and
handling included. The names of the Townships included are: Anderson,
Boon, Campbell, Lane, Greer, Ohio, Owen, Pigeon, and Skelton.
This is the atlas that May sent for us to place online.

Each file is a compilation of the actual images of the listed records. They are exact replicas of the original records. All records were digitally enhanced where needed, and converted to .pdf images to provide ease of viewing. Adobe Acrobat Reader is the ideal viewer for this medium. If you do not already have the Adobe Acrobat Reader in your computer, you will need to download it to use the files. All files you purchase will be placed on a USB flash drive. Insert the USB flash drive in your computer's USB port. Open my computer and choose the flash drive. When you open the file the first page will be an introductory page with directions for that file.

Shafer Brothers Funeral Home records are contained in nine books that cover the years January 1885 through July 1919. Each book has been scanned front to back and placed in it's own file.
The first eight books are recorded in a funeral home ledger. The ninth book is recorded in a type of business ledger. Some of the books contain inserts, paper that was glued into the original book, to lengthen the book. There is an original index in the front of each book. There are times when a page is missing and there are times when the funeral sequence for each year has been numbered incorrectly. The books are very old and in fragile condition. It took a great deal of time to scan each book carefully and not damage the original record. Therefore, some of the pages are not as straight as I would have preferred, but the information is clearly visible. These compilations of Shafer Funeral Home books are exact replicas of the original books.
Shipping and handling $10.00 per USB flash drive.

Also, she has completed a book, "Perigo's of Warrick County, Indiana,
Their Ancestors and Descendants. " The book is 242 pages with 25 pages
of color photos, and has a hard library cover. It was interesting to
research because the name started as Peregois to Peregoy, Pedigo to
Perigo. From 1865 in France to Maryland through VA, Ky to In. The price
is $35.00 plus shipping and handling ($3.00). Contact
Doris for ordering
