Welcome to the Mississippi

Public Domain Obituaries (pre-1929)
This is a 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:
- you were the original author of the obituary
- the newspaper in question grants permission to reprint the obituary
- the obituary is that of a family member (you must give the relation)
- you submit an abstract of your obituaries. A good abstract might give the paper's name, name of deceased, age, date of death, and date that the obituary appears in the paper (in parenthesis). Do you currently receive a Mississippi Newspaper? If so you too could be part of this project by helping us create Abstract Obituaries from current data.
