How to Locate Death Notices and Obituaries Online

Death notices and obituaries are an important part of the grieving process. They provide a way for family and friends to remember their loved one, share memories, and pay tribute. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, many people are unable to attend funerals or memorial services in person. Fortunately, there are ways to locate death notices and obituaries online. Here are some tips on how to do so.

Search Social Media Platforms

Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram can be a great place to start your search for death notices and obituaries. Many people post about the passing of a loved one on these platforms, so it’s worth checking them out first. You can also search hashtags related to the deceased’s name or location to see if anyone has posted about them.

Check Local Newspapers

Local newspapers often publish death notices and obituaries in their print editions or online. Check the website of your local newspaper for recent obituaries or contact them directly if you’re having trouble finding what you’re looking for. You can also search for other newspapers in the area that may have published an obituary for your loved one.

Search Online Obituary Databases

There are several online databases that specialize in collecting death notices and obituaries from around the world. These databases often contain more detailed information than what you would find in a newspaper or on social media platforms. Some popular databases include, Find A Grave, and Obituary Central.

By following these tips, you should be able to locate death notices and obituaries online with ease. Remember that this process can take some time, so be patient and don’t give up if you don’t find what you’re looking for right away.
