Finding Newspaper Obituaries

An old obituary for an ancestor is a gem indeed!  Locating obituaries can be a chore but once a find is made, it is well worth the effort.  Start with what you know and work from there.  If you can pinpoint the place of death, start your obituary search with newspapers in that area.  Another good idea is to search the  newspapers in the area where the deceased person's descendants lived.  The online newspapers at Ancestry can provide a great starting place for your obituary search.

Iowa Newspaper obituaries are a rich source of genealogy data.  These obituary search tools will help you locate old and new obituaries online. If you can't locate an obituary online, try contacting a library in the area you are searching.  Many libraries have local newspapers on microfilm and in some cases they offer an obituary index to the newspapers on file.  If distance presents a problem, try joining an  Iowa mailing list for the locality and perhaps you will locate someone in the area who can do a newspaper lookup for you.  Good luck in locating the death notices and obituaries you need.
