We have your free obituaries here! An obituary attempts to give an account of the texture and significance of the life of someone who has recently died.
It is to be distinguished from a death notice (also known as a funeral notice), which is a paid advertisement written by family members and placed in the newspaper either by the family or the funeral home.
The best place to look for obituaries is online. Search Historical Newspaper Collections has the largest obituary collection in the world and it is made easy to search. Unfortunately this is not free, though well for the price. If you are looking for your family history there is no denying that is a necessity. I have presented this site here for this reason.
Searching deep for sources to find obituaries free, there is an array of places to look. By state, you can search for the obituaries you seek.
Obituaries can be an extremely helpful tool in finding your ancestors. There is valuable information put in an obituary record like other members of the family, special dates, death date, birth date, addresses, siblings, parents, etc.
