I've been doing some research lately on various people that have passed away. (My parents are now 76 and 80 years of age and there are a lot of deaths within their community.) It seems that most of the obits, regardless of which newspaper they appeared in, are now under the domain of a company called Legacy. You have to pay money to them on their site, in order for them to restore the obit for your review. I just find that really odd. If you find the obit in the actual publication where it appeared, it directs you to Legacy, to pay for the restoration. How did they get the monopoly on obits? Has anyone else noticed this?
