California Obituary Records

California is a massive state that has many different places to look for these kinds of records. You can start your search for California obituaries with the Newspaper Abstracts website. Simply choose to search California and a large number of listings will be right at your fingertips. The Ventura County Historical Society has listings online you can search that span 1916 to 1996. This database covers listings that were published in this area in four different newspapers. The Exploring Northeastern California History Society offers access to Lassen County listings through their website. This database has cobbled together over 100 years of area listings and is free to use. The Santa Cruz Public Library System has a database of their own that covers listings from as far back as 1896. Since this is where Hollywood is located, there is a massive celebrity database located in the Los Angeles Public Library that you can also access online. There are also huge databases you can search for San Francisco County, Solano County, Trinity County and Ventura County online. Finding California obituary records is a simple process as long as you have an idea where the person you are looking for lived or where they were when they passed away.
