About The National Obituary Archive
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.
In January 2002, we implemented a major redesign
of our Web site to improve our response to the million of visitors
who searched our archive in its first year of operation. Employing
the remarkable potential of the Internet, we help people keep in
touch, particularly when reliable information is critical and a
timely response means the most.
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. New names are added
to the National Obituary Archive™ repeatedly throughout the day.
