Newspaper Obituaries
Data provided by the Bell and Howell Information and Learning Company Newspaper obituaries can provide important details regarding an ancestor's life. This massive collection contains the full-text entries for millions of obituaries reported in over 100 newspapers from around the world since 1990. Each obituary provides the decedent's name and death date. It may also provide the location of death, survivors, and even detailed biographical information. The data in this collection is provided by the Bell and Howell Information and Learning Company, but also contains information previously supplied by the UMI Company.

Vital & Church Records
Vital records, as their name suggests, are connected with central life events: birth, marriage, and death. Maintained by civil authorities, they are prime sources of genealogical information. Church records, too, rank among the most promising of genealogical records available. Cemetery records and gravestone inscriptions are a rich source of information for family historians.
