Obituaries in GenealogyLegacy QuickGuide: Obituaries in Genealogy: A Research Tool by Cari A. Taplin - $2.95
Obituaries are not only a fantastic resource for beginning your genealogical research, but they can also be a great tool for enhancing what you’ve already collected. While their accuracy should always be questioned and verified (as with ANY source we encounter), obituaries can contain a large volume of information for an individual’s family. Finding obituaries, however, is not always easy. Many newspapers are being digitized and placed online, either for free or through a subscription service, but there are still many more that are only available in physical repositories in their original form or which have been captured on microfilm or microfiche. Understanding, locating and using obituaries in your research can take your family history to a new level.

The Obituaries in Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™ contains valuable information on how to interpret the data in obituaries and death notices as well as newspaper articles and other listings. This handy 6-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.
