San Joaquin Obituary Index Card

San Joaquin County California Obituaries, 1850-1991

Ancestry has published a “new” database to their collection: California, San Joaquin, County Public Library Obituary Index, covering the years 1850-1991. The images for this “new” database have been hosted at FamilySearch for some time, and can be freely found there for individuals without an Ancestry membership. There is no difference in the data at either website, and the images at Ancestry are actually hosted by FamilySearch. While the original images at FamilySearch are completely indexed there, the Ancestry database provides relevant “leafing” for users of FTM and Ancestry’s Online Family Trees. This collection consists of images of index cards …
