  • About the Obituary Project

    The USGenWeb Archives Obituary Project was developed in April 2000. Newspapers have given permission to archive published obituaries to help researchers.

    Here is how you can help with
    the Obituary Project:

    1. Contact local newspapers to ask permission for the USGenWeb Archives Project to archive their obituaries (sample letter). Contact with the name of the newspaper and name and title of person granting permission from the publication.
    2. Check with state archives and genealogical societies to locate microfilm or other sources of pre-1929 (public domain) newspapers to transcribe obituaries from.
    3. Volunteer to transcribe obituaries from newspapers already granting permission (must have access to their publication or website.
    4. Create an index of obits from your local newspaper.
