THE HUNTINGDON GLEANER
Index of Announcements
Other Genealogy related Notices
1984 - 2008
This Index of Birth, Marriage, Death announcements and
other genealogical related information in the Huntingdon Gleaner
is intended as a research tool to compliment the Gleaner
collection at the Chateauguay Valley Historical Society
Archives. It is still a "work in progress" and currently covers
the 1984-2008 time period. The project is planned to eventually
cover the 1950 - present time and will compliment the Gleaner
Extracts prepared by Bill Henderson which covered the 1863 to
1951 time period. The latter extracts are available on-line at
the Huntingdon County GenWeb site (
Certain conventions have been adopted for this index.
The type of announcement or notice is indicated by a 2 letter
code. See the Code Sheet for details.
- Married women are listed under both their maiden name and
- Where the name of a wife or husband of a principal is known,
it is shown in the "Alternate Name" column preceeded by h/o
(husband of) or Mrs. salutation.
- French forms (e/d (epoux de) and Mme.) are indicated when the
names of the principals or their children suggest a francophone
- Births are indexed by the traditional father's surname. If
the names of the parents are not obvious as to which surname
applies to the father, two hyphenated entries are indexed.
- Engagements, weddings and wedding receptions/parties are
listed under both the bride and groom's names.
- The dates of wedding receptions/parties (resulting from an
invitation to the public) are not shown in the EVENT DATE column
since the event is not always held on the same day as the
wedding. To avoid confusion that may result from different dates
for the wedding and party, it was decided to not show the date of
receptions. Marriage announcement (Type code = AM) have the
wedding date shown if known.
- [name] ? or ? [name] is used to indicate an unknown maiden
name or husband's given name. Note the space between the ? and
the name. A few entries will have ? shown with no space between
it and the name. This indicates an uncertainty as to the
accuracy of the name.
