Kentucky Obituary Records
Finding Kentucky obituaries is a simple affair, but it can be even easier if you have a solid foundation of information to work from. For instance, if you know the county or region of the state where your loved one passed away, it can help narrow the search. As far as online databases go, you can begin your search with RootsWeb.
They have Kentucky obituary records on file for the years 1911-2000. Some listings only contain death certificates but there are also obituaries on file, as well. If the person you are looking for resided in Johnson County, you can use the Johnson County USGenWeb website to conduct a search. This website has information from the years 1852-1999 in an easily searchable format. There is also a Laurel County USGenWeb website that contains information on listings from the 1800's.
In addition to these websites, you can also check out the web pages for any and all newspapers throughout the state. Choose the newspaper that serviced the area closest to where your loved one lived for the best chance of finding a match. This is a bigger state than most people think and sometimes tracking down a listing can be a bit difficult.
