Where to Look for Death Notices or Obituaries

For those ancestors who died in the last fifty years or so, consider these locations when looking for an obituary:

  • place of death
  • place of birth
  • place of marriage
  • any places of "significant residence"
Obituaries or death notices may appear in newspapers in any of those areas. This is not true for most 19th century deaths, but you never know. Sometimes it happens then as well.
