Digging Obituaries out of Old Newspapers

Researching for obituaries in newspapers is like searching for a needle in a haystack.  Organized categories are remotely scattered across the news of the day.  An accidental death could be in the headlines or on the want-ads page while the death of others could be under the local community columns.  Then, there are articles concerning soldiers, veterans, famous persons, etc. which contain this sort of information. The same death could be published several days in a row, or only once. Further, the inked paper contains shadows and bleeds through. For this reason, a copy of it is very unsatisfactory. All in all, it takes sheer determination to find what you need.
