I have created a database of obituaries and wedding announcements from the Okabena Press from 1925 to 1978. It also includes many from Heron Lake from 1969-1978, and some pre-1925 and post-1978 obituaries of Okabena folks from papers in surounding towns. I have basic information culled
from each announcement (maiden name, parents' names) plus the issue of the Press in which it appeared. Townships are mostly West Heron Lake, Alba, Rost and Ewington, with some Heron Lake and Weimer.
I will respond to queries by giving you basic information (maiden name and parents' names if known), but more importantly will tell you the paper publication date, so you can order the correct issue on microfilm.
