Mississippi Obituary Records

The number of online resources for Mississippi obituaries is small, but the resources that do exist cover a lot of ground. This state is a bit slow when it comes to converting all those hand printed and analog records to digital, so if you check back in the years to come, they will surely have more to offer as far as Internet articles go. The Lincoln Lawrence Franklin Regional Library has an online database that you can access that contains listings from The Daily Leader newspaper. The database contains listings for the Brookhaven area from 1969-1999. The Tippah County USGenWeb site is another great source for Mississippi obituary records. This site features information from the 1800's and 1900's that appeared in the local Ripley's Southern Sentinel newspaper. In addition to the sites mentioned above, you may also want to check out local newspaper sites for the region of the state you are searching for. Sometimes, offices of vital records in various counties will also have these listings along with the official death certificate on file. It is unclear when these resources will fully come online, but until they do, you can contact them by phone or by mail to see what can be discovered.
