A collection of Georgia Obituaries spanning the years of 1740 to ca 1935 is available to members of Georgia Pioneers. It is an alphabetical database of persons who died in Georgia when an obituary or death notice of some sort was published in the old newspapers. If you are searching for an obituary, every page should be read. That is because, although there was usually the traditional Memoriam or Obituary Section in the newspapers, notices of deaths were spread throughout, even in the advertising section! Narrow spaces allotting Local areas also contained information concerning gossip, travel, sickness, accidents and deaths.Obituaries and Old Newspaper Collection
