Sunday's Obituary - Wilbert Dart

Green Bay Press-Gazette
12JUN1984, pg C-6
Ha! Did I say I needed to pull Wilbert Dart's obituary the next time I was home? I take it back. I pulled it right out of my "Dart" file. It was just sitting there waiting for me to enter it into my blog and family tree. Done! This is one of the main reasons I'm slowly going through my files trying to sort it all and into my tree properly! Not only will my tree be sourced properly and with all the research I've already done, but it will actually make my research more effective because I won't be wasting time looking for things I already have!
