Our firm has historical record and ledger books that are available to be used (on our premises) for genealogy research. The books date back to 1942 for SA Dunkel & Sons and all the way back to 1903 for Koch & Hay, then Hay & Powell, then Hay, Powell & Dexter and they contain many helpful pieces of information. In most cases, the earliest books are not much more than ledgers that tell how much the funeral cost and when the bill was paid. Cemetery locations and names of next of kin are usually available as well. From the early 1970’s forward, more detailed information about the survivors is generally available.
Our website lists some genealogy data which has been copied from some of these records. This information can be accessed by using the search option below. If you don't find the records you are looking for, please call the office. We are still in the process of adding families.
