FamilySearch adds British Newspaper Archives, Obituaries

The British Newspaper Archives, a collaborative project between Findmypast and the British Library, has made available to FamilySearch a collection of indexes of  obituaries covering the period 1800-1900.

You can search by name and, optionally, birth, marriage and death places and dates. The image shows an example of the information returned.

You can view the original newspaper article, or browse newspapers, at an LDS Family History Centre or as a signed-in member of supporting organizations (usually means an LDS member.)
