Re: finding obituaries #general

If you click through to an obituary at newspapers.com that you found
by googling the name, you can see an inconspicuous link toward the
bottom of the page that says "Show article text (OCR)". Click that
link to see an unedited OCR text of the article or the whole page, I'm
not sure what determines how much you see. You can then search the
page and read the text. It may be a little garbled; that's the nature
of unedited OCR output. But it will often include the information you
need.

You don't need to be a newspapers.com subscriber to see this.

Hi, Trudy!

Newspapers.com is a good resource for obituaries - but it's a paid subscription site.

Hello,



Does anyone know when USA obituaries began in newspapers? Other than Legacy are there any other sites where I should be looking for ‘older’ (1930s-1940s) ones?
