Genealogy: Other People’s Branches

I have come across something that is not associated with my tree, however, someone within my tree had a wealth of genealogical references without knowing it at the time.  My Pawpaw (Alex Taraczkozy) was responsible for the funeral fund at the mines where he worked for (at least) a couple of years.  He kept the disbursements notated in a funeral directors memo book.

 

So, I am going to put the information here (verified the names through ancestry by plugging in the vital statistics).  I am as sure as one can be when using ancestry as to the accuracy of the information typed.

Before I start though, I would like to note how amazingly diverse Pawpaw’s workforce was at that time.  If you look at the place of birth, in many instances these folks were immigrants.

If you are a relative of any of the people noted below and you would like the actual page, with a little proof as to your identity or maybe a phone call, I would be more than happy to forward you the page for your own records.

These pages are in the order they appear in the memo book.
