Welcome to the Virginia
USGenWeb Obituary Project!
Alice Warner - Virginia Obituary Coordinator
There are three levels of volunteering work
involved in helping with this project:
obituaries as seen in the newspaper. Permission is
required. See bottom of page for information and sample
information found in the obituary (Name, dob, dod, locations, parents, spouses,
marriage date & location, cemetery, funeral home,
date of source, picture availability) . If you
live in Virginia or know someone who does that subscribes
to a local paper, then you can help with this project!
You can index the local paper. Permission is not required
from the newspaper, so begin today. It is easy, not a lot
of typing is involved, just a dedication to saving the
obits and typing in the basic information for each one.
Estimated amount of time five to ten minutes a day (or
save them and do them on the weekend). More information
available at bottom of this page.
Obituaries also accepted. Permission is required to place
the obit word for word. Otherwise a synopsis or index of
the obit can be submitted without permission.
