Finding Obituaries and Death Notices
Obituaries can come from a variety of sources. The shrunk on here comes from a Methodist newspaper based in St. Louis. When searching for obituaries, one needs to think of all the various locations where an ancestor lived and her affiliations to determine all the newspapers that might have published an obituary or death notice. An article on our site gives several suggestions for finding records of this type. We have a sample of a letter from a German language newspaper printed in the United States as well.
