About the project About the project:

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.

How you can help How you can help:

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:

  1. you were the original author of the obituary, or
  2. the newspaper in question grants permission to reprint the obituary, or
  3. the obituary is that of a family member (you must give the relation), or
  4. you submit an abstract of your obituaries.  A good abstract might give the paper's name, name of deceased, age, date of death, and date that the obituary appears in the paper (in parenthesis ).

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!
