Most genealogists are well aware of the importance of
finding a death certificate for each ancestor. However, many overlook
obituaries as an equally valuable source of information.
Newspapers are usually found on microfilm at the
newspaper, local libraries or Historical and genealogy societies in the
areas. If not found in the local area of the death, State Historical
Society will usually have the newspapers on microfilm, and can be
ordered by interlibrary loan. Also available in some cases, larger
newspapers have begun indexing their obituaries and you may be able to
access these if you use an Internet search engine.
