Local newspapers recorded a variety of information about people in the area where the newspaper was published. Obituaries or death notices were often recorded a few days after a person's death. Marriages and births may also have been recorded in newspapers. Detailed obituaries were not common previous to the 1890s. Sometimes there wasn't a local newspaper printed in a particularly town, but people in that town may have been mentioned in a newspaper in a town or larger city nearby.
