New Obituaries Database Launched

The African American Genealogical Society of Northern California (AAGSNC) announced on September 21, 2013 The Obituary Project. It is an online searchable database of Obituaries and Funeral Programs. The database is a donated collection from members and friends. These records include deceased from Arkansas, California, Georgia, Tennessee, and Texas.

This database is currently available to research on our web site within “Members Only” in the Compiled Databases section.

We welcome contributions to this database. To submit your contribution for this collection contact the Chair of the Web Site Committee.
