This index includes over 40,000 records of significant events (articles about birth, birthdates, biography, engagement, marriage, anniversary, military, death, obituary, or of uncommon interest). When it could be easily discerned, women were listed by maiden name and married name(s).  Some death notices or obits may be duplicated in the Obituary Master Index.  Spellings of names and surnames were entered exactly as found in the newspaper.
