Dee, I have a suggestion for you IF you're hoping for other family members (descendants of your ancestors) to find you. (I don't know if you are or not.) If you transcribe the obituaries and other newspapers clippings and post them on your blog along with scans of the originals, the search engines will pick up the transcriptions. (Again, maybe that's not helpful or of interest to you....)
