Genealogy Updates for 16 March 2023

This is an almost daily list of newly discovered genealogical resources available online, carefully curated by hand. These resources may include articles, databases, news articles, or any other items related to genealogy that catch my attention or are recommended to me. The list is not limited to newly created pages but may also include pages that have been significantly updated or are simply “new to me.” Each link provided may lead to records for millions of individuals or just a few. Most of the resources on this list are available for free, often supported by advertisements. However, some may require payment to access certain databases. Let’s begin with today’s list from GenealogyUpdate!


Arkansas Funeral Home Records

This page links to known Arkansas Funeral Records whether they be available online or offline. Of all the state funeral record pages done so far, Arkansas, by far, has the most available records from funeral homes. Unfortunately, they are largely not available online, but sit on microfilm at the Arkansas State Archives. Free research is available for them, and we’ve provided information about that on this page too.
