On the record ... with Dorothy Stoddard
MALTA – Thanks to one local woman, people researching family trees in Malta or who just want to know about the early residents of the village have a new place to look.
Dorothy Stoddard has completed "A Scrapbook Obituary Collection for People With a Connection to Malta." The book, released in December, contains approximately 3,100 obituaries with ties to Malta, dating back to the 1840s. It comes in both book and disc formats.
The lifelong Malta resident said it took her 15 years to compile the information. She searched family collections, local newspapers, funeral homes and other sources. Stoddard received some help from her daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Tom Plote, but did most of the work herself.
