Free Halifax, Virginia Look-Ups

I am Afro-American, and my ancestors were from Halifax County Virginia.
I recently obtained, and recorded, 797 Obituaries of
African-Americans who were connected with Halifax County Va. in some
kind of way.
Almost none of these persons can be found in George Calvin Waldrep
III two voI. Halifax County (VA) Cemetery books.
I have included, when it was given in the obit:

1. Surname
2. first, second, and third given names,
3. DOB, DOD,
4. Name of spouse, sometimes date of marriage,
5. Names of parents,
6. Where the person was buried.
7. If the person was born or died elsewhere etc.

These persons were born as early as 1833, and died as
late as 2001 (not the same person).
Again, these are Afro-Americans.
This is info I compiled myself, from the actual Obituaries, I did not
copy this info from Anyone or Anywhere else.
I am willing to to do look ups.
