I would like to make you aware of a unique website for learning about Obituaries, and to use for searching for obits as well, at www.obituarieshelp.org.
This free website that is staffed by volunteers is quite different than the normal site for gravestones, and obits, in that there is a good blend of information and data about obituaries that may be used for people in need of writing an obit for the recently departed.
I do not think I have ever seen such a site before and when thinking about it do believe that this is a great service and an excellent idea.
There are advice sections on what should be included in an obituary, online resources, sympathy messages, sample letters of condolence and funeral resources.
Along with this element of information there is a very strong complement of genealogy resources such as Free Genealogy Forms downloads, Ancestry Research, Search, Family Trees online, and many other sections helpful to genealogists.
From their own description of their website: Access newspaper obituaries and discover your genealogy online. Discover obituary resources like old newspaper obituaries archives and Download free genealogy forms and printable family tree charts.
Please visit Newspaper Obituaries – ObituariesHelp.org and have a look around. I’m sure you will find something that will be of interest and will help you in your research.
Here is another website that will give you some ideas about using old newspaper articles for genealogy research and how to Search Obituaries.
