Obituaries are a great source for genealogists to find dates of death.  Sometimes there may be no official record but you can find a family notice of a death.


  • The Ryerson Index – this is a free searchable index to death notices that have appeared in Australian Newspapers from 1803 – current day.
  • USGenWeb Obituary Project – this USA-based project is working to transcribe all public domain indexes and obituaries for the United States.
