At this site we are making available obituaries from the Universalist Register, the yearbook of the Universalist Church of America. The compilers of the Register began including obituary notices in 1862. Some obituaries are substantial biographical notices, others are mere mentions of the death. These are offered as supplements to the material in the Dictionary of Unitarian and Universalist Biography. The existence of a substantial entry here does not mean that an entry is not needed in the Dictionary. Rather, the obituary should be looked at as one of many sources for a Dictionary article.
We have begun with the oldest obituaries. Listed below are the years so far added to this site:
