ProQuest Obituaries

ProQuest Information and Learning has announced the launch of ProQuest Obituaries, offering access to obituaries and death notices from the full runs of major national newspapers dating back to 1851. ProQuest Obituaries enables users to easily find ancestors and historical figures, and to trace their family histories through a database of more than 10 million names. To familiarize users with the database's rich content, ProQuest developed "In Passing", a free weekly e-newsletter that highlights particularly interesting passages from ProQuest Obituaries, the latest addition to the ProQuest Genealogy Center. Librarian subscribers will be able to use this newsletter to promote the rich rewards of genealogy research during October, which is Family History Month
