The Importance of Obituaries

The importance of obituaries is often overlooked by the average genealogy researcher.  These little newspaper gems can bring a vast amount of new information to you about your ancestors.  Often, you will find names of parents, siblings, children, wife and other surviving relatives listed.  The cause of death is often given, especially in the earlier ones.  This can give you additional information about health traits that are inherent in your family tree.  One important fact found in these little newspaper items, is the place of burial which can lead you to your ancestors grave site.  Spending some time searching for old newspaper obituaries can bring you new data to rev up your genealogy search.  A great place to start your newspaper search is in the Old Newspapers! online at Ancestry.
