Using For Your Genealogy Research

Believe it or not one of my favorite websites for genealogy research is It is a leading provider of online obituaries for the newspaper industry.

At legacy you can search for obituaries nationwide, some of them are free to see and some you may need to pay in order to be able to read them. Fortunately I have yet to pay for any obituaries, but that is not how I use

My favorite tool that they provide for free is that you can enter keywords to be alerted of any obituaries that may contain those keywords. Once there is a match they will send you an email of the death notice or obituary.

I am currently using it to monitor several small towns in South Texas and Northeastern Mexico. It has proven to be a great resource specially on those distant relatives.

If you had not been using them I hope that you check them out.
