SoCal Obituaries - Repository Listing  


Adopt a Library

If you referred to our repository page, you know that we have many, many libraries to be adopted. Please volunteer to adopt a library in your area. All that is required is to visit the library in person to get basic information about their lookup policies, and gather information about their newspaper holdings. Please use the introduction letter and the questionnaire, which are both found here.


Other Volunteer Opportunities

We've listed dozens of genealogical societies on the links page. Any of these organizations would be very grateful for the contribution of your time and talents.

Obituaries for people who died after December 31, 1922, are protected by copyright laws and cannot be published in full except in certain circumstances. To stay on the safe side, add the name to an existing obituary index, such as the one at Obituary Index.
