Brick Walls: If you have a brick wall genealogical problem – something that a simple Facebook query can’t handle – we can help. Define the problem, tell us what you’ve done so far, and we can post it in our Queries section on our website and in our magazine.

As we begin the process of moving to our new website, the Obituaries Project database will have no further updates on this site. The database will undergo a data conversion process to configure it to the new website. Transcribers are now working in a new format, but the newly entered data will not be available until the new website goes live.
