US Obituaries

America's Obituaries & Death Notices: "Each day, America’s Obituaries & Death Notices consolidates records from hundreds of newspapers nationwide into a single, fully searchable database. This comprehensive resource features more than 22 million listings—this is approximately 70% of all recent obituaries and death notices published in the United States. Additionally, this resource will soon incorporate tens of millions of additional records, organized by state, from the Social Security Death Index (SSDI). An extensive, daily editorial review of every section of each newspaper ensures that obituaries and death notices are added to this database—including paid and unpaid death notices in the classifieds and records.

Faster, more accurate search results
Each record in America’s Obituaries & Death Notices is individually indexed, providing bibliographic citation information: the newspapers’ name, date, city, state, edition and page number. Also, an intuitive, map-based interface enables librarians and researchers to search specific cities, states, regions or the entire country. Both the indexing and the map-based interface ensure faster, more accurate search results and are offered only by NewsBank."
