The National Obituary Archive™ With 55 Million Records On File

Only librarians can understand the value of the National Obituary Archive because very often users call public libraries to request more info about obituaries.

The National Obituary Archive™ is the world's largest repository of obituaries and death records with more than 55 million individual entries on file. Visitors may search the archive freely to learn about the deaths of friends or family or to explore relationships when building family trees or doing genealogical research.

Funeral directors across North America serve as Contributing Members to help us publish obituaries based on information provided by families. To improve the completeness and accuracy of our archive, we encourage families and those familiar with one or more names in our records to correct any errors they find and to purchase lasting, illustrated memorials to replace the basic data from official sources.

Searching obituaries in the National Obituary Archive is free. However attaching a tribute (statement of affection) will cost you $9.95, memorials are more expensive. Adding your name to the guestbook and correcting a record are still free.
