I am looking for an obit in Mobile, AL. I contacted the local Mobile newspaper, and was told they don't keep obits back to 2000, but I could get a copy from the Mobile Public Library. I live in Kansas so that's not an option.
The information from the Social Security Death Index:
Name: Vera Prinz (Full name Vera Ione (Kring) Prinz)
Last Residence: 36523 Coden, Mobile, Alabama, USA
Born: 27 Jun 1910 Died: 3 May 2000
State (Year) SSN issued: Louisiana (Before 1951)
I was able to find a partial obit online, but the links were out of date and I haven't been able to find an Internet archive site that goes back to the dates in question.
Here are the original links I found which are dead now: http://www.al.com/mobile/obits/2000-5-7.html http://www.al.com/mobile/obits/2000-5-5.html http://www.al.com/mobile/obits/2000-5-6.html
The preview pane showed the following for the 5/7/2000 obit, but the 5/5 and 5/6 ones were similar:
alabama 36606 mrs. vera kring prinz : funeral services were held sat. ...
... mrs. vera kring prinz : funeral services were held sat. 5 /6/2000 ...
I searched several newspaper archives and several genealogy websites, but did not come up with anything, other than the Social Security Death Index information.
I also tried Find A Grave to see if her grave/cemetery information was listed, but it's not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated even if it's only the cemetery information.
