GenealogyBank and FamilySearch – What a Team!


I don’t often comment or write about subscription-based newspaper sites and their updates, but this new collaboration between GenealogyBank and FamilySearch caught my eye.

Genealogy Bank has as part of their database, obituaries starting from 1980 through the current year. They have made this database available through FamilySearch, which was just announced.

There are over 500,000 searchable images.  It can be searched at United States, GenealogyBank Obituaries, 1980-2014.

The data from the obits are available via the FamilySearch search results.  It looks like currently you will still need to have a GenealogyBank subscription to see the images directly from the search result. However the images according to FamilySearch are browsable.

Thank you GenealogyBank and thank you FamilySearch!

  1. I took a look. The images are not viewable through the browsing route. You are presented with a GenealogyBank link.
