Tips for a Successful Middletown Journal Obituary Search
Genealogy research can be challenging as many records are incomplete or filled with mistakes. For a successful Middletown Journal obituary search, it’s good to have multiple strategies at your disposal to ensure you get the correct relative.
Most older obituaries will include some pieces of family information. Obituaries can be used to uncover information about other relatives or to confirm that you have the right person in Middletown, Ohio.
For a successful search of Middletown Journal obituaries, follow these tips:
- Use information from more recent ancestors to find older relatives.
- Try searching by initials. Many old Middletown Journal obits used initials instead of full names.
- Are you looking for a female relative? Try searching for their husband’s name.
- Perform searches by using common misspellings. TITLE editors often didn’t fact-check spellings in the past.
By implementing these strategies, you can go deeper with your research and uncover the ancestors you never knew you had. It’s also ideal for fact-checking, as many obituaries weren’t necessarily created with 100% accuracy.
How to Find Ohio Death Notices in the Middletown Journal
Finding death notices in the Middletown Journal can be another vital source of genealogical research. But what’s the difference between a death notice and an obituary?
Although some people use the terms interchangeably, they’re actually two different things. Obituaries describe the person, who they are, and what they did in their lives. Death notices, on the other hand, are formalized reports of someone’s death.
Family members would have published death notices in the Middletown Journal to detail the person’s name, age, residence, and any information about the funeral service. As family members typically wrote these, they tend to be relatively accurate.
Death notices can help extract more information about an ancestor and uncover where they happen to be buried. So, how do you look up local death notices and sift through hundreds of years’ worth of history? If you want to find death notices alongside Middletown Journal obits, follow these tips:
- Include Boolean operators and proximity search techniques.
- Use multiple collections to fact-check any found records.
- Connect other family members mentioned in the death notice to confirm whole sections of your family tree.
The Middletown Journal records are invaluable sources of historical information about local people. We make it easy for you to search, discover, and share your family’s untold story.
