need copy of Byrne obits

Postby oilman19 » 03 Apr 2010, 22:20

I don't know if this info is available. I don't have Ancestry.com. I am looking for 2 obits from California.
Howard Thomas Byrne b. 29 Oct 1927 d. 13 Feb 2010
Gloria Carmel (Beno) Byrne b. 12 Jul 1928 d. 13 Nov 2008
Any help would be appreciated.

No success. I've tried all of the search engines I could find. I would really like to see the actual obits if possible.

Jim, do you know the city where the deaths occured? Looks like maybe Long Beach, CA?

If so, check online newspapers for that city and/or contact the research desk at the nearest public library. The library option would probably be free; newspapers typically charge $5 or so for an obit which is more than a few weeks old.

I checked the Legacy.com/obituaries/lbpresstelegram/" class="postlink">Long Beach Press-Telegram index and came up empty on both names. Not sure what that means...

Yes, it was Long Beach. I checked the P.T. also but no record. It is possible there was no obit but that is unusual. I was hoping someone would be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat before Easter. LOL.
Based upon my searching, I found no evidence of an obit for either person. I was hoping there would be one.

Thank you,

Jim

I also checked Ancestry . com, by the way.

It does seem a bit odd, especially since these are so recent.

The public libary is at http://www.lbpl.org/contact/default.asp and they have this cool feature called AskNow. It says, "Ask reference questions via online chat. The AskNow service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

Hey, 24x7? Give it a shot and let us know what they say.

They provide links that are temporarily unavailable. and then tell you to send $15. per request. Not a successful venture. I tried.
I had also been trying to find Howard's parentage in Brooklyn, NY to no avail. I have not found any way to find that record online either.
I started the thread because you and the other posters frequently have resources I have never seen. I was just hoping for the best. I spend so much money on films at LDS, I was trying to reduce my expenses.
Thank you for your help.

Well, it's a tough one. From Ancestry . com:

Name: Howard Thomas Byrne
SSN: 107-20-7051
Last Residence: 90808 Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States of America
Born: 29 Oct 1927
Died: 13 Feb 2010
State (Year) SSN issued: New York (Before


Name: Gloria Carmel Byrne
SSN: 072-22-9349
Last Residence: 90808 Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States of America

Last Benefit: 90808 Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States of America
Died: 13 Nov 2008

That information and $16 (each) will get you a "Computer Extract of Social Security Card Application" (or, for $27, a photocopy of the actual application). The records should include the place of birth as well as parent's names. http://www.socialsecurity.gov/foia/html/foia_guide.htm
