Biographical Information: Find Newspaper Articles

How to Find Biographical Info in Newspapers

We have extensive databases of historical and current newspapers at Furman.

Beyond obituaries, you can often limit searches to:

  • Birth notices
  • Marriage announcements
  • Soldier lists
  • Arts, events

If you aren't finding what you need with the entire name, try the last name alone and search a specific time period.
