The new Obituaries Board is designed to permit you to submit various obituaries (with a Darke Co. connection only, please) that you find or have in your own collection. Funeral card transcriptions are also acceptable as long as you indicate the name and location of the funeral home. Sources are always important, but we realize that many have clippings in their possession which no longer have any information about the place or date originally published. You may still submit these, but please indicate what you know as YOUR source. For example, if you found them in the family Bible, use that as your source.
The Obituaries Board is set so that all posts are listed in alphabetical order. When you try to change viewing preferences you can only choose to limit the time period for when a post was made or select that posts are sorted in reverse alphabetical order. It is also a Moderated Board so that when you make a post the Board Administrator has to verify that it follows acceptable formats and that the subject is set so that it sorts correctly. There may be as much as a week's delay before a post might show up in the Message Index or you might be contacted in e-mail for more information.
When you are ready to post yourself, please follow these few guidelines for
Obituary posts to make your visit more productive for yourself and others.
(these are still under construction and may change)
YOU own your posts and we have left you the option to delete your post at a later time if you wish. However, you must provide a password for that post at the time you make it. Without your password, you will have to contact the Board Administrator to get a post removed or corrected. Be aware that if you remove your post, you may not remove the replies that were made to it. Every separate individual owns their own posts. DCOWeb is merely the custodian making your posts available for viewing.
