Archives & Manuscripts Department: Obituaries A-P


Obituaries may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think about research, but they are in fact, regarded as a resource for historians and family history hunters alike.  Obituaries are often the missing link or the best starting point for many successful genealogy searches. They are mini-storylines of a person’s life often highlighting major occurrences between "born on" and "deceased on".  They can tell you a lot about someone, which makes them invaluable in genealogical research.

This database displays obituaries of persons that were once affiliated with Southern University and A&M College.  From members of the Board of Supervisors (BOS) to Faculty/Staff and Students.
