Obituary Project Guidelines

Along with the data on a headstone, an obituary can be equally as valuable to a researcher. The “source” of the Obituary is very important, not only for the researcher, but for copyright issues as well.

We welcome and encourage adding Obituaries if you have them. Please use the following format in the Comments Section after the data on the headstone:

*Obituary
Rogers Morning News
Thursday, May 31, 2012

*Obituary
Roller Funeral Home
Little Rock, AR
Thursday, May 31, 2012

(Day can be left off if not known)

Please add (Obit) after the Given Name when adding an Obituary.

Example: Wilson Julia (Obit)

Wilma Fields is our Obituary Coordinator for the state, and she has graciously agreed to check for uniformity and keep the AGP project within copyright laws. Wilma will remove the (Obit) just like Richard removes the (new) on Veterans.

Note- If you have a scanned copy of an Obituary, email the scanned copy to Wilma (wfields55@hotmail.com). Wilma has a program that will conver the scanned document to a 'text' file, and she will then add it to the memorial.
