Obituary Guidelines

Here are some guidelines to help you write an obituary:

An obituary is the notice of a person's death.

Generally information regarding names of relatives, date and location of birth and death, and service information is included in an obituary. Unlike other medium, such as newspapers, EverObits provides a very generous word allowance (2,000 words, equivalent to approximately five typed pages of text), so you can include information here for which there is very often not enough space in a typical newspaper obituary, such as descriptions of the person's interests, achievements, stories, and discussion of those relationships that were particularly important to them. This is information about your loved one that will last for generations on the Internet. Below are a few links to provide you with some assistance in how to write an obituary to honor your loved one.
