This database is a compilation of obituaries published in U.S. newspapers, collected from various online sources. Obituaries can vary in the amount of information they contain, but many of them are genealogical goldmines, including information such as names, dates, places of birth and death, marriage information, and family relationships.
This collection of Ohio obituary records was compiled by the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center from various Ohio newspapers, and covers years 1812-2011. (Please note that there are some gaps in coverage.) When available, each record contains the name of the deceased, spouse’s name, age at death, city of death, date of death, date of marriage, date of birth, as well as a link to additional newspaper references.
