Nevada Obituaries

THE OBITUARY PROJECT

The goal of this Obituary Project is aimed at at putting all the past and present
obituaries from NEVADA newspapers online for the benefit of genealogical research.

How you can help:

Go through old newspapers (published 1936 and prior) 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 Nevada Obituary Project will abide by today's copyright laws. We will not put on line complete obituaries
published after December 31, 1936, unless*: you were the original author of the obituary, or the newspaper
in question grants permission to reprint the obituary, or the obituary is that of a family member (you must
give the relation), or you submit an abstract of your obituaries. 
A good abstract should include the paper's
name, name of deceased, age, date of death, and date that the obituary appears in the paper (in parenthesis ).
