Obituaries are useful in genealogical research because they often contain birth dates and places; names of parents, siblings, spouse, children and other relatives; death information; and place of burial. Local genealogical and historical societies, public libraries, newspaper publishers, and other organizations maintain clipping files of obituaries. Printed abstracts of obituaries can also be found in various published sources, such as genealogical periodicals.
The Family History Library has collected some obituaries for Australia. These are listed in the Place Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under:
AUSTRALIA, [STATE] - OBITUARIES
