The idea for Freeobits.com came to me many years ago when I witnessed first hand how expensive obituaries were to have them placed in a daily newspaper. Since that is always an emotional time to make decisions, often times people would spend hundreds of dollars and never really be pleased with the results.
Also, websites would ask for sponsorships in order to maintain the obituary after a certain time period. This just didn’t seem right to me.
Unfortunately, this site does not search for obituaries that have been placed in newspapers around the country. I know it can be frustrating when searching for information that often times end up with nothing, or at best a website asking for a membership fee to seek out more information. However, as Freeobits.com continues to grow in popularity, my vision is for it to be the one source database for all obituaries around the world.
I hope this site provides the service you need.
