New and improved Name Search and enhanced Search Results Display are the latest improvements on ProQuest Obituaries Database.
Both features allow for greater content discovery, as users can more easily search through indexes names and locations as well as the text of the obituary itself
The Obituaries Database from Proquest includes more than 10.5 million obituaries and death notices from many U.S. newspapers, starting in the 1880's. To see more details, please read the post from Library Journal.
Libraries often receive calls for obituaries, so I am sure that those changes will improve the precision of searches for librarians.
