Providing more than 10 million obituaries and death notices in full-image format from uninterrupted historical runs of top national newspapers dating back as far as 1849, this growing database offers wholly unique content unmatched by any other single resource. And it’s suitable for all levels of researchers, all over the country.
These obituaries have been pulled from newspapers in major centers of immigration spanning all geographic regions of the country. They include:
• The New York Times (from 1851)
• Los Angeles Times (from 1881)
• Chicago Tribune (from 1849)
• Boston Globe (1872-1923)
• Washington Post (from 1877)
• Atlanta Constitution (1868-1922)
• Chicago Defender (1909-1975)
A single obituary can encompass many personal and geographic attributes. A person memorialized in the pages of The New York Times may well have emigrated from Europe and lived in various places throughout the U.S. The obituary often provides this vital information—and not just for the subject of the obituary. It can also include valuable data about friends and family.
