If you are researching a contemporary figure or someone who is not well-known, try finding articles. Articles are also useful for fleshing out research on any individual.


To find obituaries, search newspaper articles.

Search Tips

  • Search close to the date of the individual's death.
  • Search local newspapers for members of the general public.
  • Combine the person's name with the word "obituaries"; you may need to add "death or dies" to your search.
