Obituaries

How to Submit an Obituary

Length: Obituaries can be any length.

Photos: All photos will be cropped down to a headshot, so photos that are focused in on the head are best. We prefer digital photos emailed to obits@registerstar.com, but we can scan hard copies. 200 dpi is preferred.

Pricing: Obituaries are 65¢ per a word. To get the best estimation, submit the obituary text to us so we can format it. Photos are $20 per run. Obituaries run one time in the paper, unless otherwise arranged. If you want to run it a second day, the cost is half of what it cost to run it once.

Proof of death: For obituaries submitted by families, we need proof of death. That can be a copy of the death certificate, or a funeral home we can contact for verification. It can also be an obituary that was run in another newspaper, if no other proof can be obtained.

Payment must be arranged before the obituary is run. We accept obits at any time of day, but to run in the next day’s edition, all information and payment must be in hand in our office by 2 p.m.

We can accept obituaries by email, fax, hand-delivered, or mailed. The email is obits@registerstar.com and the fax is 518-671-6043. The Register-Star office is at One Hudson City Centre, Hudson, on the second floor, Suite 202.

Please call 518-828-1616 ext. 2465 to reach the Register-Star.
