This is a statewide project aimed at getting all the past obituaries from Arkansas newspapers online for the benefit of genealogical research. The idea for this project came from Mr. Bert Edens, who first suggested this on the Arkansas mailing list.
Go through old newspapers (published prior to 1929) and copy the obituaries found. We will also accept single obituaries that you have in your files. You can submit either complete obituaries or abstracts (just the facts) of the obituaries. Check with your local library to see what old newspapers they have on microfilm.
The Arkansas Obituary Project will abide by today's copyright laws. We will no longer put online obituaries published after December 31, 1928, unless:
These newspapers have given (or denied) permission to the Obituary Project to reprint their obituaries!
Remember, you just might have the obituary that someone else is looking for!
To submit obituaries to this site, click here! Please include your name, the name and date of the newspaper, and the home county of the newspaper. Also include your relationship to the deceased.
