Obituary Records (Obits)

Obituary Records can be a fantastic source of information for genealogists.



They often contain much more information than just a death record. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries it was not uncommon for even relatively minor people to have incredibly long obituaries that tell practically there whole life story.

Obituaries are the few final written words that provide glimpses into the lives of ordinary people and allow us to look at our own lives and times. [Source: "Obits - The Way We Say Goodbye"]

Please Note: This is a master index of most but not all the obituaries on Ancestors At Rest and as such is getting quite long. If you know the State or Province that your ancestor lived in you may want to take a look at the page for that State or Province first.
