5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Thorvald on September 7, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is not a 'reading' book; it's purely a reference book. The book is alphabetical listings of death records and obituaries from various Missouri newspapers. The print is _tiny_ so the book is thin, but there is a huge amount of information in it. Browsing through is interesting as causes of death, and methods the person used for suicide, are included. I downchecked the book a bit for the lack of introductory material explaining exactly how the book's format relates to the original newspaper listings--how much is exact quotation? how much is the author/compiler's inserted comments? how much info was excluded from each listing?--and for the extremely tiny print size. The listings seem trimmed down to the basics.
For broad historical research purposes, the price of the book may be worthwhile. For someone doing genealogical reseach looking for a single person, the price may be a bit high as you may be able to get the individual listing from other sources.
