This is just a quick post to announce updates to my "Mostly African American Funeral Programs"database. As a reminder, if you see programs that interest you or that are connected to your family, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will either scan and email the full program to you, or, if I have more than one copy, I'll mail you an original!
Today's additions to the database include a few of my grandmother's programs, from the 1960s, and a set of my own fellow Aberdeeners (the section of Hampton I grew up in), which were collected by the late Lin Batchelor, a neighborhood icon who left us in 2016. He collected the programs and kept them in his barbershop. After his death, they were loaned to me by our mutual friend, Shelton Tucker, to upload to my database. I added a few, today, and will get the rest input during my next sitting.
Surnames added today (with year of death) are as follows:

Here's a randomly selected sample from today's additions to the database. This is my friend, Robin Jones, who grew up just around the corner from me, in our beloved Aberdeen neighborhood, Granger Court.
