Nevada Obituaries

Writing a family history or doing a family tree is not just a pastime, but a considerable undertaking. It's fascinating to trace a family back to its roots, learning about how people lived a long time ago it's not a movie, it's not a book, it's your own very real family. Some useful (though morbid) documents would be obituaries, death notices, or death certificates. The first two are published in newspapers, announcing the death of a person and, in the case of obituaries, providing quite a lot of potentially useful information such as family members left behind by the person whose obituary it is. All in all, obituaries are an excellent source of genealogical and biographical information.

As more and more people try their hand at genealogical research, historical record repositories like libraries, historical societies and local authorities are taking care to facilitate the process as much as possible. Nevada libraries have put indexes of their newspaper records online, making it super easy to find a particular issue, granted it is part of their collection. The only thing you need to know before that is the full name of the person who you are researching, their date and place of death, and the name of the newspaper.

This information may be readily available for those who have passed away recently but family histories are usually about more distant ancestors, a fact which in many cases makes the obituary search more or less challenging. There are, however, resources that will help you overcome the challenges and find the obituary if there is one. Alternatively, you can request a copy of the person's death certificate -- it is also a valuable document for genealogy.

Your first stop along the way should be one of the few good online obituary databases. Your search engine of choice will display these at the top of the results page. These websites are more reliable when it comes to more recent obituaries, but with older ones their databases are not so comprehensive. This is important to bear in mind in order to avoid coming to the conclusion that if there is no obituary on one of them for instance, then it doesn't exist at all.

There are also helpful local websites, usually the work of volunteers, such as this death index for Mineral county. These could sometimes be the best source of obituary information, because the contributors include not just newspaper obituaries or funeral home announcements, but personal documents, which may be unavailable anywhere else. The same goes for cemetery records, which can be valuable in cases when there is no obituary and no death certificate. Though cemetery records do not contain much information, at least they will give you the dates of birth and death, and the full name of the person you are researching, as well as, maybe, the names of their immediate family members.

Obituary websites use information from newspapers, funeral homes, and sources like the Social Security Death Index, so for the most part you can rest assured that the information is reliable. While some require paid subscription to display the full text of the obituary, most are free to view either an index entry including the full name of the decedent, date of death, date of publication of the obituary, and name of the newspaper, or the full text of the announcement. If you find an entry about the object of your research without the full text, your next step would be to contact the local library and request a copy of the newspaper issue. In some cases, this would be your own local library, but in others, it would be the library in the place of residence of the decedent.

Before going to the library in person or writing an e-mail to them, you should be able to browse their digital resources, to see if that particular library keeps the run of the newspaper you need. The UNLV libraries, for example, keep an alphabetic index of local newspapers on their website, complete with details about the range of issues they have.

The UNLV libraries also have a vast newspaper collection. Some of the newspapers it keeps go back to the 1870s, and it also has a range of other genealogy resources, including family histories, church records, and census data.

Libraries also have the advantage of providing you with access to specialized paid subscription services, which you can use on-site. These include sources of information like NewsBank and the Ancestor Library Edition. The official government websites for Nevada can all be accessed from The Nevada State Library and Archives also has an extensive genealogy research database. Resources include a lot of historical newspaper runs, church archives, an obituary index from the Nevada Appeal, an index of death records from 1911 to 2005, and many more.

But obituaries are not something that is published for every person's death. There is a possibility that however hard you search, there is no obituary to be located. In that case, the Nevada Office of Vital Statistics and county recorder's offices are the places to look. The Office of Vital Statistics keeps death records from July 1, 1911 onwards. You can request a copy of a certificate if you are a direct family member of the person named on the certificate. If not, you can try locating direct family members who would make the request on your behalf. If the death certificate you need dates earlier than 1911, then you should contact the recorder's office in the county where the event occurred.

Obituary searches can be a pretty tough endeavor, especially if you start out with scarce information. But they are rewarding, as you will get to learn so much about not just the one person whose obituary you had set out to find but about their whole family, and about local history too. There are plenty of resources both online and offline that will aid you in that search and help you get to the (successful) end of it more quickly and successfully.

Nevada D 2016 - History

There are any number of precise and intimidating definitions of postal history. While these are all technically correct, in many ways they miss the wider aspects of hobby.

In a word, postal history is about mail. All over the world almost everyone receives mail. This mail, where it is from, where it is going, how it is paid, how it got to its destination and tribulations it faced in its journey is postal history. It speaks of the time and place it was mailed, the way it traveled and the scars it picked up along the way.

Since mail toches almost every person, postal history touches almost every interest. If your interest is in a place, perhaps your home town, the country of your ancestors or your favorite vacation spot, postal history will enhance that interest. If transportation is a passion, the movement of mail encompassed most modes of transport. Mail was the first mover in the development of some air travel and significant in utilizing rail network. Most every significant event of the last 250 years can be traced in the mail. Since every army provides mail for its soldiers, if the military is important to you, then postal history is intertwined.

Mail is a window to the past and a mirror of the present. Postal history opens that window wide and focuses the mirror. It tells us about ourselves, our ancestors, our nation and our world. The simple journey of a letter can be the start of a personal journey to wonders of the world.

3D History: Exploring the world with Virtual Reality & Google Cardboard

There’s nothing quite like being part of several thousand social studies teachers – all hanging out together in Washington D.C at the #NCSS2016 conference. It doesn’t get much better than spending four days chatting about history and best practice and tech integration and resources and geography and civics and econ while spending the evenings at the new Smithsonian African American museum, the Newseum, and the National Portrait Gallery.

And getting the chance to lead a couple of conference sessions – one of them with Kansas Council for the Social Studies president and superstar middle school teacher Kori Green? Icing on the cake.

Kori has been using the Google Expeditions app and Cardboard VR viewers with her kids this fall semester. Together we shared her experiences and a few other suggestions for classroom use. For those of you not able to make our session, I’ve posted some of the conversation and a few additional resources here for whoever might find them useful.

This is a short list. Have some of your own goodness to share? Post ’em in the comments.

General resources

General suggestions

  • Cardboard is pretty sweet but it can do more that just look at cool StreetViews of the Great Pyramids or be part of a virtual fieldtrip. What sorts of thinking to you want from your kids? Is it a hook activity? An exit card strategy? Part of a writing prompt? Does the app supplement a student’s text or primary sources? Is the Expedition the actual primary source? Could you have students create local histories based on photospheres that they create on StreetView? Be clear about your end in mind.
  • But learning should be fun. So don’t freak out too much – especially in the beginning – if your activity is not directly aligned to NCSS and ISTE standards.
  • When you want the kids’ attention, use the Pause Tour feature in Expeditions and they’ll see a message on their iPad that says “teacher paused.”
  • The app has built-in details and context that you see on your device and locations to show students while the tour is live. But be aware that when you pause the tour, this text slides back down and is hidden from the Guide / teacher. So be prepared for that by taking a screenshot of the text to use while you have the tour paused.
  • All Expedition tours come pre-loaded with targets that you can use to direct students to specific spots on the 360 image. But you can create your own targeted hotspots by tapping and holding the image on your device.
  • Some district networks have blocked teacher to student device connections so be sure to test things out with a student device before going whole group.
  • A workaround? Once an Expedition tour has been downloaded to the teacher’s device, no actual internet access is needed to push it out to students. You need just the wireless signal to connect devices in the room. Setting up a simple off the shelf wireless access point (without internet access) will connect all of your room’s devices and avoid the quirks of your district filters.
  • Use keywords in the search box of the Expeditions app to find tours or browse this online Google Sheets list of all of the current Expeditions to quickly see what’s available. The list has more info about each of the Expeditions and makes it a bit easier to find useful tours.
  • Kori and I really like the Cardboard viewers from Knoxlabs. Just $5 and stands up well to lots of use.
  • If your kids are using personal devices, make sure they hook into the district wifi. 3D and VR can be a killer on data plans.
  • Find new and useful VR / Cardboard apps by including “vr,” “virtual reality,” and “cardboard” in your search terms.

Congressional Partisanship in Historical Perspective

If there’s one thing almost everyone across the political spectrum seems to agree on, it’s that Congress is broken.

As this illustration from 1910 demonstrates, partisan politics in Congress today is certainly not without history. “Now we see through a glass, darkly,” Udo J. Keppler, 1910. Library of Congress.

There’s also widespread agreement that an unprecedented level of political partisanship is to blame. Is it truly unprecedented? And how did conditions in Congress get so toxic? The National History Center’s latest Congressional Briefing took on these questions last Friday. Fittingly, it occurred in the belly of the beast, a meeting room in the House Cannon Office Building.

Donald Ritchie, historian emeritus of the Senate, moderated the briefing, which featured Joanne Freeman, a professor of history and American studies at Yale University, and Brian Balogh, a professor of history and director of the Miller Center’s national fellowship program at the University of Virginia. They did what historians do best: use the past to provide perspective on the present.

The problem of political partisanship has vexed the republic since it was founded. In his introductory remarks, Ritchie reminded us that George Washington had warned against political parties and partisanship in his farewell address. Freeman reinforced Ritchie’s point with her eye-opening account of the “cycles of stridency” that occurred in the 1790s and the 1850s, quickly disabusing her audience of the idea that the current partisan environment is unprecedented.

As Freeman noted, presidential elections caused intense partisanship in the 1790s and culminated in the contentious election of Thomas Jefferson in 1800. (Several states were prepared to call out their militias in case of a different outcome.) As for Congress itself, the hyper-partisanship that plagued the body in the 1850s is hard to match. Members of the two chambers packed heat, made death threats against one another, and engaged in fistfights and group brawls. One congressman even received a pistol engraved with the words “Free Speech” as a gift from his constituents as he left for Washington, DC. Freeman identified two factors that contributed to this overheated environment. One was the growing interconnections between Congress, its constituents, and the press, made possible in part by the spread of the telegraph. The other was the political instability manifested in the collapse of the Whig Party, the fracturing of the Democrats along regional lines, and the rise of the Republicans, which resulted in diminished faith in Congress as the problem of slavery rose to new heights.

Balogh began his presentation by pointing out that in the 1950s, an American Political Science Association report worried that the dearth of ideological distinction between the two political parties was undermining participatory democracy. How did we get from this anxiety about the absence of partisanship to the contrary conditions today? Balogh noted that the shift began in the 1960s. The passage of the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts drove southern whites out of the Democratic Party and made African Americans its most reliable voting bloc. Republicans, in turn, increasingly became the party of white churchgoers, especially evangelicals. This resulted in the solidifying of ideological and geographical divisions between the two parties. Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich disproved the old saying that all congressional politics is local when he launched his highly successful “Contract with America” campaign in 1994, which produced a more partisan and polarized Congress. Simultaneously, the proliferation of party primaries gave greater power to ideologically motivated voters, who punished candidates willing to engage in cross-party compromise. Finally, the media underwent dramatic changes—cable TV’s 24-hour news cycles, the rise of right-wing talk radio, the increasingly refined use of polling data, etc.—that fragmented audiences and forced parties to accentuate their differences. The cumulative effect of these factors was the intensely partisan environment that currently informs congressional politics.

The question-and-answer session that followed amplified some of the preceding points while adding others. One issue that arose repeatedly was the relationship between political parties and partisanship. We tend to associate the two, but Freeman pointed out that the partisanship of the 1790s occurred before the development of distinct parties, and in the 1850s when political parties were in flux. Balogh, in turn, noted that ideological differences did not clearly align with parties in the 1950s and that partisanship within Congress has grown more intense even though party institutions and party loyalties among the public have weakened in recent decades. Ritchie also reminded everyone that partisan conflicts play out differently in the Senate and the House due to the different rules governing relations between the majority and minority parties in the two chambers.

While the panelists did not intend to provide prescriptions for reducing partisanship in Congress, everyone attending the session certainly came away with a fuller appreciation of the complexity of the problem. We might take solace in the fact that congressional partisanship today has not led to the physical violence that antebellum congressmen engaged in. Still, that’s small comfort given the increasingly polarized, invective-laced environment in which today’s Congress operates—or fails to operate. With a presidential campaign that grows increasingly contentious and unpredictable by the day, two political parties that advocate starkly different policies and face ominous signs of internal fragmentation, and a cacophonous media that supercharges the ideological divisions among voters, there seems little reason to expect that congressional partisanship, which has driven the institution’s reputation to abysmal lows in recent polls, will lessen any time soon.

Update: A video of this congressional briefing is now available on C-Span.

The Nevada State Records mission is to provide every person the right to detect, obtain, preview and examine public records, thus enabling the residents of Nevada to preserve the knowledge about state and local government activities and the conduct of the people within.

The main purpose for giving access to this information is to offer citizens and any other interested individual the ability to research and request information discreetly and in accordance with Nevada Public Records Law , which states that government-generated records must be available to the public.

In order to access, preview, and examine these records, interested citizens do not have to specify their reason for wanting a record. The exception is if the requested record has been made confidential.

Nevada began collecting information about criminal records, court records, vital records, and more in 1851, and these public records usually include information from all 16 counties thereby continuing to ensure that our community remains a “free and just” society for all. Since the late 80s, digitization of public records has become the standard, meaning government websites and third party organizations are increasingly offering these records online.
