Online memorial database launched

Readers may submit and search online for local obituaries

A new online obituary database, Lasting Memories, offers Almanac website visitors access to previously published obituaries and a convenient way to post remembrances.

"Lasting Memories is in response to inquiries by readers who have asked for a way to search for obituaries and a seamless way to submit obituary information," said Tom Gibboney, publisher of the Almanac. "We hope it'll be a great community service and a lasting history of local residents."

Go to AlmanacNews.com/obituaries to see the Lasting Memories pages and post information and remembrances.

This service is also available on the websites of the Almanac's sister papers, the Palo Alto Weekly and the Mountain View Voice.

Visitors looking for a particular obituary can search by first or last name, years of death and birth, keyword or tag. Visitors can also browse recently posted obituaries.

New obituaries may be submitted by clicking "submit obituary" and filling out the form provided, including name, dates of birth and death, city of residence, and relevant biographical information.

There are spaces provided for memorial-service information and requests for memorial donations, as well as the option to upload a photo and a YouTube video link.

Visitors to the site may leave comments and condolences on obituaries by clicking "submit a remembrance," and there is the option of sending a private e-mail.

We can't do it without you.
