Obituaries are miniature biographies published when a person dies. They are just one of at least three possible death notices that you may encounter, and each can provide clues to your research for the deceased and the family. The writers were compelled to compress as much information into a small amount of text. Your job is to carefully analyze the content of the death notice, obituary, and/or funeral notice and discover clues. This webinar presents a methodology for dissecting an obituary, determining what information is provided or suggested, identifying record types that may be available, and determining where those records might be located and how to access them.
