Obituaries

You can find a wealth of information about a person in newspaper obituaries. Typically obituaries are one of the only biographies that family members will create when it comes to a loved one's life history.

You'll find information about an individual's accomplishments, careers, places they've lived, associations they've belonged to, names of family members, and more. Obituaries are an invaluable source of information for anyone interested in finding out more about a specific person who has passed.
