The Irish death notices in American newspapers announced the deaths of Irish men and women who died between the years 1845 and 1909. They are taken from a number of publications, and also list the deaths of Irish people who died outside of the United States.

Each record includes a transcript of a death notice taken from an American newspaper. These usually include information such as the deceased’s name, the date, place and cause of death, the publication title, the place and parish of burial, the spouse’s name, parents’ and relatives’ names, age at death, and occupation.
