Researching local obituaries is a great place to learn more about your family tree. Find out important details around your deceased ancestors passing, including the dates, number of children and grandchildren, age and causes of death, as well as important information about their family and the community. Oftentimes, obituaries also include photos. Perhaps your father's great grandfather ran for the Republican seat in the local government or your mother's second cousin was a member of the local theatre group.
