This is a new project for California and we hope to make it a success by getting many local newspapers & funeral homes involved! We need people willing to trascribe newspaper
obituaries that have agreed to let us print them. Please look at the list below and if you would like to volunteer to transcribe these papers pleas contact Adopt Me!.
How you can help:
Go through old newspapers (published prior to 1923) and copy the obituaries found. We will also accept single obituaries that you have in your files. You can submit either complete
obituaries or abstracts (just the facts) of the obituaries. Check with your local library to see what old newspapers they have on microfilm. The California Obituary Project will abide
by today's copyright laws. We will no longer put online obituaries published after December 31, 1923, unless you were the original author of the obituary, or the newspaper in question
grants permission to reprint the obituary, or the obituary is that of a family member (you must give the relation), or you submit an abstract of your obituaries. A good
abstract should include the paper's name, name of deceased, age, date of death, and date that the obituary appears in the paper (in parenthesis ).
