Can I found obituaries online somewhere (older)? In Finland Brages pressarkiv is a goldmine för genealogists whith all the obituaries they have cut out from the news-papers since 1910.
I found this site http://www.obits.com/ but they only have obits
for the past week or month.
Who knows?

Thank you June.
In the first site, I couldn´t open the states obituaries or death records.
