Search tip: If you're having difficulty finding a married woman as a survivor in an obituary, try putting the woman's first name in parentheses followed by her last name. For example, when searching for Mary Smith, try this search string: (Mary) Smith. The reason for this is that sometimes a married woman was listed under her husband's name first, followed by her name. For example: Mrs. Charles (Mary) Smith. When attempting to search survivors for female relatives, try searching by the female's first name enclosed in parentheses followed by her last name.

     Example:     You cannot find:       Mary Smith
Try searching for: (Mary) Smith
