Seeking "Funeral Food" History
Kathleen Purvis, a food journalist in Charlotte, N.C., is working on a book on funeral food in America. She needs information on funeral food history, including estate inventories, journals or letters that list foods served; family stories; or recipes. She's also looking for families that still do cemetery cleanings, and members of active burial societies. Reply to kpurvis@charlotteobserver.com, or (704) 358-5236, or
