Recast is transcriptions of births, marriages, divorces, and deaths that were reported in the weekly publication Variety between January 1918 and December 1919. This was a turbulent time in world history: the Spanish Flu Epidemic and the end of the First World War. There are over 240 entries for deaths from the flu in this publication, and a majority are for persons below the age of 40, who often did not have direct descendants (children). A generation of entertainers, gone.
