JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Legacy obituary site #general


Hello Jewish Genners,

The library in Jacksonville subscribes to a ProQuest database, America's Obituaries
and Death Notices. I've found obituaries for family members on here going back to
the 1950s. Occasionally, I'll run across an obituary when doing a name search,
that's even much older. These are full text obituaries, but as the name of the
database states, only for American newspapers. It can also be accessed with my
Florida library card through the Florida state site, Florida Electronic Library.
I'm sure that many libraries in all states subscribe to this database.
