The news reports of so many deaths and recent passings of relatives, I’ve been thinking about ancestors and their passing. As family historians we are excited to find those death dates but pausing to remember the humanity is important too. We’ve discussed records related to death some time ago. This week let’s look at those past blogs.
Over the years I’ve included many ideas for finding information related to death records, including grave markers, funeral notices, obituaries, burial records and wills. I hope that this walk through past blogs jogs some ideas for you related to family records.

I have a few brick walls related to death records in my family. Every year, I revisit past records I’ve found and new ones that are now available. Have I found my answers? Not always but this review helps me to generate additional ideas. I hope you find some new ideas too. Happy visiting the past.
