Newspaper Abstracts/Extracts Bibliography

As county coordinators, we often receive inquiries from researchers on how to find various types of information.  A common request is how to locate obituaries and death information – sometimes even going back before official state and county records.

Over the years,  many have taken the time to go through historical newspapers and pull out items of genealogical interest such as births, marriages & deaths.  Many of our county sites have detailed information on how to locate such records, but as an additional aid, we’ve put together a bibliography of print resources to help you locate information extracted or abstracted from various newspapers in the state.

The new page is hosted on the FamilySearch Research Wiki in light of our collaboration with  The page has a purposeful emphasis on PRINT resources. When available, each book will link to the catalog record for either the Family History Library or to help you find the book at other libraries.
