    3. Wow. What a neat group of people on this list! I had looked long and hard before I sent out my original email, but the people on the Charlevoix County list provided my answers in an eye-blink! Amazing! Just as amazing is your willingness to help! I belong to quite a few genealogy lists, but this one really stands out. Now I feel able to take the short time I have in Boyne City and make some real progress. Did I pick up somewhere that obituaries might be available at the Library in Boyne City? I would like to find them for Eugene, Florence, and "Josie". Can I assume that death registrations would be at the county building in Charlevoix? I am a volunteer for findagrave.com, taking and posting gravestone photos - which I expect to do with the ones I find for my FERN family - but I also find obituaries and death registrations for those asking for stone photos. I feel as though what has gone around is coming around for me, now, thanks to you folk. If you are not familiar with findagrave - http://www.findagrave.com this would be a great time to make its acquaintance. It looks as though you have an active genealogical society in Charlevoix County - and specifically in Boyne City - and this would be a great project for some of your members. I see that there are large numbers of photos from Maple Lawn Cemetery already online, and some more would be nice. It's so easy to do - even THIS old techno-tard was able to learn!! Go for it! Again, thanks for ALL of your help! I am eager to visit Boyne City, knowing what a helpful group lives there.
