goal of the database is to include all obituaries that have
appeared in the publication This Week in Texas, focusing
especially on the "AIDS years" of 1982 through 2000, but
beginning in 1976. And I estimate progress to be about 98%
complete. Significant data from other publications is also
included, and more will be added as available.
project was developed by JD Doyle, and could not have
been done without the cooperation of the member organizations
of Houston ARCH, the Houston
Area Rainbow Collective History.
Its member organizations very graciously allowed
access to publications in their holdings.
