Are you in the process of looking for your ancestors? A free obituary search is what can help. Genealogy has come a long way since the advent of personal computers. Once information is uploaded on a computer, there is not limit to the amount of data you can collect on anyone your desire.
Who are you looking for?
Are looking for a long lost relative or a dead person with a similar name to see if there is any relation to you? For example, you go to the search engine Google™, Yahoo™ and AOL™ to name a few. You type in the term “free obituary search “and come up with thousands of results. If you know the full name and date of birth, the search will be that much easier.
What is your claim to fame or infamy?
Some people will look up family names to find out what famous person was part of their lineal heritage. Unfortunately, some people find they are related to infamous or hated individuals. It is hard to imagine being related to some one like that but it certainly could happen. Either way it could give some interesting party tales.
Is it really free?
That is a question for the ages. Some sites are not free and others are free for a certain time period with slogans “30 days free” or “Try it free for 60 days”. You typically can cancel your subscription during this time or get charged a monthly fee. The fees for obituary or genealogy sites can vary from site to site. You will find the monthly fee is more costly then an annual fee, in some cases a good bit more.
You can probably change your monthly fee to annual fee if you find that you will be using the site often over the next few months.
Who is reputable?
In terms of reputation, you can go online and search for complaints against an obituary search company. In fact you can do it with anyone or any organization. You will also see that if the company has a lot of complaints that it will not take too long to find some.
Finding a free obituary search can be a very satisfying experience. It could help you find the person you’ve been searching for. Just keep in mind the more information you have a particular person the easier it will be to find that person.
