My Mother's Mom, Jeanette Katherine (Cutler, Pollister) Smith

So, I have been researching my mother's line quite a bit this year, more so than my father's line, and I had very recently (and finally) found my grandmother's obituary. From there, I was able to extract quite a bit of information, including the Funeral Home, the Cemetery, the presiding Priest/Pastor and my grandmother's living relatives (as of 2008).

I was quite excited by the new finds, a mere two weeks ago. I began entering everything that I could from the Obituary, I was then also able to locate records for my grandmother on This was a great find, I just wish I had photographs to go with the Obit and such...

I did, however, find my grandmother's marriage announcement and divorce decree on and found a bit more information on, where I entered quite a bit of information as well.

I am going to try to reach out to some of the relatives marked in my grandmother's documents, to see if they are still around. If they are, then it will be a great experience...

I have much work to do in the coming days....

  1. Hi Vince,

    Have you heard about Find A You can search out your ancestor grave. If you don't live near the place of burial or can't get to it. You can request a volunteer to take a photo and post it to the memorial.

    Good Luck,
