I have a relative that died in Gooding in 1928. Is this too early to find an obituary?

Hi,

It all depends upon which newspapers were microfilmed and if the family or funeral home placed an obituary in a newspaper. There are two obituary volunteers for Gooding Co. at www.gengathering.com. You do have to create a user ID and password to enter this web site but access to the volunteer info is free. Enter Idaho and Twin Falls in County box. Successful Searching!

I see you are new to posting on the Rootsweb system. When you post, identify the person you seek and some criteria information (Their DOB is ALWAYS helpful, their DOD and POD also helps, spouse name, siblings, parents) If the name is common (John Smith), the more you identify the better. In man cases, an obit may not have been published, but there are other records that might be available (Census, State Archives, Recorded Documents, Grave info, etc).
