Welcome to the Mississippi
USGenWeb Obituary Project!
- Oxford Eagle

Public Domain Obituaries (pre-1929)
This is a new project for Mississippi and we hope to make it a success by getting many local newspapers & funeral homes involved.
Ways You Can Help
You can help us by submitting a letter to the publisher of any local Mississippi Newspaper and get permission for current obits to be published. A sample letter can be found here
The Mississippi Obituary Project will abide by today's copyright laws. Obituaries published after December 31, 1929, unless:
