Many sources of biographical information are not available online. To find sources in print, search the Library Catalog.
Use the Advanced Search and enter "Biography" or "Biographies Dictionaries" or "Biographies Directories". It often helps to combine this with an additional search term, such as a country, occupation, etc. You may also want to limit your search to reference collections.
Below are some sample searches.
Obituaries often appear in newspapers. To locate newspapers, view our guide How do I find newspapers? Many of our newspaper databases include a search limit for obituaries.
Obituary indexes can be helpful in finding obituaries for an individual. Most of these indexes are only in print. Search "obituary indexes" in the Library Catalog for a listing.
