Funeral Announcement for Teresa Diaz

This afternoon I received a nice surprise email from a librarian in Special Collections at the University of Arizona. The library is making searchable digital copies of historic newspapers, including El Tucsonense, the Spanish language newspaper of Tucson. Their full site launches in late April 2013, but the librarian was kind enough to provide a preview link.

Below is the announcement of the funeral for my 2nd-great-grandmother, Teresa Diaz de Portillo, who passed away on 16 June 1940. This appeared on page 3 of El Tucsonense on 18 June 1940.

There are many more articles on the Campuzano family in El Tucsonense. This is a great resource and I'm looking forward to further reading.
