Below are listed the free websites of the few of the hundreds of public libraries throughout the United States who have this local resources on-line!

You can find most of these types of databases by using Goole Search on-line at: < http://www.google.com/.

In the search box I used the terms: public library obituaries

The second search I used the terms: public library obituary
