Most times I'm looking for just an obituary notice. How do I limit my search to just those articles?
A: Yes, you can do that on GenealogyBank.
Step 1. Start your search.
For example let's say that you are researching the surname: Clapper
Enter that surname & press enter
Step 2. Limit your search results to just the obituaries
Click on the blue highlighted category: Obituary
Your search results will then be limited to only the obituaries for the name you are searching.
