There's Obituaries In

'Them There Newspapers'!

Finding an old obituary for an ancestor can be like striking gold!  They can contain information which is vital to your research efforts. Locating obituaries can seem very tedious but once a find is made, it is well worth the effort.  Start with the information you have about your ancestor.  If you can determine your ancestor's place of death, start your obituary search with newspapers in that area.  If all else fails, another idea is to search the newspapers in the area where the deceased person's descendants lived.  The Old Newspapers at Ancestry offer a starting point for your obituary search.
