HOLLIS+'s "Everything" tab will turn up some obituaries. 

A good place to search is ProQuest's News & Newspapers Database. If you select "advanced search," you can choose "obituaries" from the "document type" list.

If you know the names of newspapers you want to try searching and have a time frame in mind, you can search in HOLLIS for the newspaper's title. The HOLLIS record should tell you what years we have available and whether you can access digital copies of the newspaper (there should be a link in the HOLLIS record), or if we have older copies on microfilm.  You can also search  The Widener Collection of Newspapers on Microfilm by place, city or title.

There is more information about searching newspapers in our research guide: http://guides.library.harvard.edu/news​
