Arkansas Deaths

  • The Arkansas History Commission has added a huge collection of Arkansas deaths, spanning the years 1819-1920. It is an ongoing project, and the 100,000+ records on the site so far are the culmination of a year’s worth of work between staff and volunteers. It includes information from “church publications, cemetery records, mortality censuses, newspaper obituaries, or county and local records from the Arkansas History Commission’s extensive holdings.”Search the records here. Additionally, volunteers are welcome to help, you can even help from home.Thanks to Research Buzz for the heads up.
