Wynkoop Family Obituaries
and Death Notices,
Plus the Occasional Sermon.

    Here you will find Obituaries and Death Notices plus the occasional Sermon for Wynkoop family members from the United States. These articles range in length from several pages to just a paragraph in length, but all of them contain valuable family information and the occasional snippet of family history as well. Although most of these Obituaries and Death Notices come from newspapers, you will also find the occasional magazine article as well.

    You may find a lot of discrepancies in the family histories related here. Most of these Obituaries and Death Notices were written at times of great personal stress and their accuracy has a tendency to suffer as a result. Generally speaking, however, you'll find that the family relationships are accurately represented and that can be exactly what you, as a researcher, may need to make that vital family connection you've been struggling so hard to find.

    Many of these articles also appear under the heading of Wynkoop Newspaper Articles. Many of these are the same articles, but organized more specifically as obituaries.

    If you have an Obituary or Death Notice for a Wynkoop family member that you would like to share, please contact me at chwynkoop@hotmail.com. You may soon find it added to this growing list.

    Finally, a word of apology. Some of these articles contain photographs reproduced from the newspapers they originally appeared in. Unfortunately the quality of them is pretty poor indeed. If you happen to have better copies of these pictures and would be willing to make scans of them for me, please don't hesitate to contact me at the above email address. I think we'd all benefit from sharper, clearer pictures of our ancestors and family members.

    Best wishes,

    Chris
