We will be posting in the near future a funeral register from Lantz Brothers in Shelbyville. This consists of a summary of funerals conducted by Lantz Brothers in 1900, 1901, and 1902 with a description of each, costs, etc. Posted here you will find a sample. What will be posted will be an Excel spreadsheet so that names will be searchable and columns can be sorted.
A sample of this register:
Lantz Brothers were important members of the business community, selling furniture, hardware, and many other items in addition to funeral services. Two of their buildings still stand.
Lantz Brothers Store
Lantz Brothers Funeral Home
We will also be posting some sample pages from several business ledgers kept by Lantz Brothers. Very interesting to see the prices and buying habits of 100 years ago.
