Who are some of the survivors of the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 and where can I find this information? What are some ordeals these people went through?

You can start here: http://www.cnn.com/US/9804/18/survivors.06.quake/

The article is from 1998 when some survivors were still alive. I believe the last one died recently (and she would have been a very young child in 1906).

Please don't give out wrong information if you don't know something and don't just guess. It is the year 2002 not 3002. That means that a person would have to be 96 years old to have survived the quake. Believe it or not, there are a lot of people in this city that have lived here before 1906 that have iron core constitutions and are not going to let 96 years of age or older do them in. I attended the 1906 anniversary luncheon at John's Grill on Ellis Street on April 18th of this year where 17 survivors showed up. Nobody really knows the exact figure of the total number of survivors but we think there can be about 200, maybe more.

i have recently devleoped a way of telling if someone is funny by three sentences they have written. so, what im wondering is, am i funny? by the way, my name doesnt count.cos this really is my name. dont worry, im not thinking about a lawsuit. im thinking about cheese. yes, so id really preciate it if one or many people came up with some sort of funny test. i anticipate questions to which humourus or unhumourus aswers must be given. and u lot remind me of rhebus monkeys.
