Part 145g – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1940 Death – Great-Grandmother Mary Alice (née Crossley) Goodey

10 December 2009

Good morning once again,

In the research of genealogy there is always the one find that may not be as pleasant as most of all the others. It is the recovery of the Death Certificate, the moment that one knows that he or she may not find anytime more of the ancestor’s life. But in most cases the Death Certificate may include a tremendous amount of information that may be critical to the genealogist recreation of a family tree.

Great-grandmother Mary Alice (née Crossley) Goodey passed away on the 24th of January, 1940. The following is the Entry of Death found in the Civil Register at the General Register Office.
