Looking for genealogy Louis J. Schmett born Oct 1880 in Dubois County, Indiana
he died in1978.
His wife is Ida ??? would love to find her maiden name?
Any ideas where I may find her?
I would suggest signing up for the archives free trial on the site. It is really amazing and easy to use. Go back to Indiana.obituaries.funeral.comand click on the search Cemetery and Death Notices at the top right hand corner of the page. Then sign up for the free trial.
I used it personally for the first time 3 days ago as we just added this service to the funeral.com
site 2 weeks ago.
True story, when I searched for my grandfather on this it showed me census info for 1920 when he was 4 years old and entire family of 5 living in Minnesota. Then I decided to look back further at his father or my Great Grandfather so it also showed the 1900 Census info and my great grandpa was 24 years old at the time and living in Illinois.
Surprise, surprise is all I can say with what I saw next!!!
Instead of seeing a single man or my Great Grama “Esther” name showing up, it had another woman, age 23 also from Illinois.
Well, a second marriage is not uncommon however it might be especially after I passed all this on to my mother and her 2 living sisters late 70′s never heard of this woman before now they are all digging in to this wondering if in fact there are relatives that are not accounted for as Great Grampa had secrets that didn’t get passed along.
This was all found by accident using this free trial by me in last few days.
Sorry for long story but as you can tell I’m rather intrigued by it and the information available is staggering and easy to use, so you will be able to find any info you are looking for and probably info you aren’t !
My many THANKS, and I loved your story. You are an answer to my prayer, as my greatest desire in all of this searching, is to find a “warm body”
that will even take the time to read my story. You were more than the warm body. My sincere appreciation. I have not done it yet, but you have my word I will do it before I
go to bed.
