Beth,

Thanks so much for your reply. This helps tremendously... Martin E. Milligan was my grandfather's half brother & I know very little about him. Hopefully the information that you gave me will help me in my search. I would love to find some of his family members that are still living. :) Do you know if Vancouver has a site where you can go through the obits online?

God bless,

Beth

have you checked the Social Security death index ? I found 7 Milligans whose last residence was Clark Co., WA.

I found 11 Milligans living in Vancouver through the white pages online.

I am going to the local genealogy library on friday. will see if I can find an obit for Martin. if I can, do you want a copy or should I just make a list of survivors ?

you can email me direct at recross@pacifier.com

Hi,

I'm not Beth, but if Don, who regularly looks up obits on this forum, doesn't see your request or can't do it, I'll look it up for you. The Columbian newspapers are on microfilm at the Ft. Vancouver Regional Library. We can scan it & send it via email, type it in, or snail mail it to you.

Oh, thank you... I did check the white pages & printed out a copy of the names & numbers so that as I get time I will call & see if they are related.

It would be wonderful, if it's not too much trouble, to have a copy of his obit as well as a list of the survivors. I would love to get in contact with any of his family.

I did check the Social Security Death Index but was only looking for Martin E. & his wife. I'm truly not for sure how long he had lived in Vancouver.

Thanks again for all of your help... it is greatly appreciated.

God Bless,

Beth

the books I was looking for were not at the genealogy society. I'll make a trip to the library one of these days and see if I can find the obits.

I did find an obit for Audrey Milligan. it lists her survivors. contact me at recross@pacifier.com and i'll send you the info.
