Suggest trying the public library. Many will do lookup requests.

Hope it helps.

If not the library, local genealogy societies also track and file obits. Ours has an ongoing catalog of names, date of birth, death and date obit appeared in the paper. Many of ours go back to the early 1900's.

Lisa,

Great idea!
Many libraries are also doing that.....have ancestors from Oneida County, NY & the library has indexed obits dating back to mid 1800's.

Anyway, poster should be able to find obit through one of the places.

Obits can be wonderful sources, as they sometimes lay out the whole history with names and dates......but I have also seen some that contain no more info than name, birthdate, deathdate and where services are to be held!!!!!!

Hey! Your lucky when you get that much. Mid 1800's, you get name, place & death date or just name & death date......very informative :!:

Hi,

Do you know where this person had his funeral??

The funeral homes make the note and send into the local papers you mention. Like a paper where this person grew up, where he lived most of his adult life and where he presently lived at time of death.

Sometimes, I have a few from New Jersey, they keep the origianl copy of the obit on file with the persons information.

Did you family all use the same funeral home, chances are this is the only one used for him also.

If all else fails, call the local library or try on line.
