What You Can Learn From Obituaries

As you can see we are working on Shiloh to Canaan Obituaries and Memorials. We still have so much to post it seems we will never get caught up. But that is not a problem. We would be grateful for any you would like to send us. Just e-mail them to ShilohToCanaan@gmail.com.

There are many things you can learn from obituaries, death notices and memorials. Always remember to check the obituaries of parents and siblings. They may have information that is not mentioned in the obituaries you are looking at.

Here are a few of things you can find:

  • The full name
  • Place and Date of birth
  • Place and Date of death
  • Place and Date of funeral
  • Place and Date of burial
  • Name of spouse
  • Names of parents
  • Names of siblings
  • Names and order of children
  • Names of grandchildren
  • Where they were living at time of death
  • In some cases more
