Free online obits of doctors, dentists, 1841-2011

Posted: 14 Apr 2011 10:14AM GMT
Classification: Query
I found a wonderful free online source: published medical journals which print members' obituaries! See:

(Make sure you search PubMed Central, not just PubMed.)

I've noticed journals published in the US, the UK, and Canada. There may be other countries as well...?

I searched PubMed Central's database for "Necrology" and found hundreds of free obits. Many of these are several pages long AND include photos.

You can also search for "obituary" or "obituaries". Those searches bring up thousands of free obits.

You can also search by a surname.

If you include a first name in your search, you MUST include the word AND. Example: David AND Watkins.

Here are the names I found when I searched for Necrology: (year is publication year, which is usually the death year, but not always)
