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 online newspapers at Ancestry offers a great place to begin your obituary search.

Wisconsin 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.  Most libraries have local newspapers and publications on microfilm.  Often they will have obituaries indexed.  If distance presents a problem, try joining a  Wisconsin mailing list for the locality and perhaps you will locate someone in the area who can do a newspaper lookup for you.
