Don't Give Up!

Obituaries can provide a wealth of information for the genealogy researcher.  Finding them can present a challenge in some cases.  Remember many times in the old newspaper, obituaries were printed once a month or once a week.  So be sure to search for many issues before and after your ancestors date of death.  I recommend searching at least a full month on either side of your ancestor's death date. 

The Old Newspapers at Ancestry offers a great place to begin your obituary search.

Maine 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 area newspapers on microfilm and in some cases you will find an obituary index to help you locate obituaries in those newspapers.  If distance presents a problem, try joining a  Maine genealogy mailing list for the locality and perhaps you will locate someone in the area who can do a newspaper lookup for you.
