Daily Press Obituary Search Tips

Obits are frequently published in the local newspaper where your deceased ancestor called home or other family members lived. If you don't find your ancestor in the Daily Press obits archive you might try expanding your newspaper obituary searches to include multiple localities and newspapers for the best obit search results.

If you receive zero obituary search results for your ancestor's first and last name in our recent Daily Press obits archives, try searching by your ancestor's last name only to increase the amount of obituary results returned. In addition, try widening the geographical area to include nearby places like Richmond to help capture more data.

Obits offer valuable family history information—expanding your family tree in all directions.

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, age and causes of death, as well as important information about their family and the community. Perhaps your great grandparents served in the state of Virginia's government or your loved ones were staples within the community church. Learn these details and more all through obituaries.
