Beginning in the 1920's, Alice Faulring collected newspaper clippings
concerning residents of Boston, New York and others she knew.  Most of these clippings
are either death notices or marriage announcements, with a smattering of birth and anniversary
notices.  Extending this tradition, her daughter, Ethel Zahler, continued to collect such
clippings into the 1990's.  The indexes may be accessed by the following links:

The subjects of these newspaper clippings are usually residents of
Boston, New York or one of the surrounding towns.  Very occasionally, family members
or friends from more distant locations are included.  The clippings are from the local
newspapers [Buffalo Evening News, Buffalo Courier Express, Hamburg Post, Springville
Journal], however, the paper of origin is not included on the clippings, so it is not possible to
assign the specific source.
Most of the headings of the Indexes are self explanatory. The "Type" of clipping is as follows:
Announcement of a marriage or birth
Church Bulletin from a Church Service
Funeral Card from a Funeral Parlor
Invitation to a weeding or receptioin
Hand written note by Alice Needham Faulring
Death Notice from a Newspaper
Obituary from a Newspaper
News Story from a Newspaper
The entries for "Number Children" and "Number Siblings" refer to the number of children and siblings, respectively, listed in the particular item.
We will be happy to communicate any additional information from the clippings.  Please send your requests to the address below.
