THE GENEALOGIST Adds New Obituaries from 1600s to 1800s

The Genealogist, a leading resource for online genealogy and family history research, has just added over 20,000 obituary records from the Index Society, Musgrave’s Obituaries and the Society of Friends to its record collection, with obituaries dating back to the 1600s.

You can now access a set of intriguing records covering three important publications from the Stuart Era in the 17th Century to the Victorian Era in the 19th Century.

The entries give the dates not only of the individuals’ deaths but also their birth dates or ages and often other useful observations such as occupation details and other family members. Obituaries often cite their sources as well, for example providing a newspaper page, edition, etc so you know where to look next for more information.
