World War II scrapbook of newspaper clippings

Helen Moody created of Helen's Little Corner site has added valuable new information to her website. We both receive lots of requests for obituary information about veterans and Helen has tried to address these requests by making veteran obituaries available on her web site (besides all the other obits she transcribes).

In addition she has recently indexed the 136 page scrapbook of Paul Brown. Brown collected newspaper articles, mostly from the Dillon Herald, during WWII about local soldiers including articles about awards received, wounded soldiers, visiting soldiers,etc. The post title will take you directly to the scrapbook. Helen's Little Corner is listed in the South Carolina Online Indexes links.

Helen's Little Corner also has indexed Marriages Recorded at the Office of the Judge of Probate from 1911 - 1926.

Actually there's alot of information on the site so I would suggest putting an hour aside to take a look at everything.

Helen is an unsung hero of genealogical research in SC. She indexes and puts information online so it is free and accessible. The Dead Librarian loves free and accessible!
