AVAILABILITY:  This index is currently in the process of being transcribed into typewritten form from handwritten, penciled 3x5 slips. This project has been undertaken by local and state genealogical groups. Copies typed so far are available for public use in the Troy Public Library.
SCOPE OF INDEX:  Primarily an index of marriages and deaths.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  A book form index typewritten onto 8½x11 inch pages. Entries are arranged in alphabetical order by personal name. Entries consist of the name, a code for marriages or deaths (m or d), date of marriage or death, name of spouse, and other appropriate information. The citation consists of the month, day, page and column where the article appeared. No year is indicated because the appropriate year is indicated at the top of each page, along with the name of the genealogical group responsible for the transcription into typed format. Users are reminded that there may be errors on the part of the typist in interpreting the handwriting. No attempt was made to recheck the newspapers for possible coding errors.
