Remember whats'er name? She played the girl in that dumb movie with whoziss. What ever happened to her? Specifically, is she dead yet?
Here's where to find out. The Dead People Server is a database of interesting celebrities who are long dead or newly dead. They may be "retired" or spaced. DPS tells you who has really Rung Down the Curtain and Joined the Choir Invisible, and who's Just Resting. To help the terminally confused, I've built a Quash Those Death Rumors page.
"Interesting," in the previous paragraph, means "I felt like putting them on this list." Your mileage will vary. If you're curious how I decide to add folks to the list, see the Guidelines. Dead People Server is committed to providing factual information about the deaths of people listed here.
There are a few entries of fake people/entities/other in Dead People Server. At least six I can think of. Each entry is pretty obvious. If an occasional joke offends you, you shouldn't be reading a site called Dead People Server. If some blunt discussion of death offends you, you shouldn't be reading this site either.
In addition to providing timely updates and an extensive archive, Dead People Server Weekly looks back at five blasts from the past (RSS Feed).

If you can't find the answer here to your search, and you're looking for a movie or TV celebrity, go to the Internet Movie Database, an amazingly-complete database of anyone who's ever been on celluloid. I usually link to an individual's biography in IMDb by putting this graphic IMDb beside the entry. I'm adding links back to specific records in other useful content sites by using the following icons:
|IBDB||Internet Broadway Database Record|
|FindAGrave||Internment Information at FindAGrave|
|Dead People Server Photo/Graphic Gallery|
|AwardWeb||AwardWeb (literary award winners)|
If you have a photograph of someone who is listed in Dead People Server, I'll be happy to store the photograph here or link back to a photo at your site. Sketches are also welcome.

Disclaimer: Information is confirmed by a variety of sourcees, but I sometimes make mistakes. I try to check all material against at least two sources, and do not include purely bogus material (except, as noted above as an occasional joke). If you're trying to research a celebrity that interests you, here's how to do the research. You might consult DPS or the "How to Find" file first before posting the question to alt.obituaries.
If you find this kind of trivia intriguing, you might want get involved with deadpools. I've been active in the alt.obituaries deadpool since 2006. I followed the stiffs.com dead pool for about ten years. You're welcome to use DPS for research for this or any of the other deadpools that are out on the Web. I also maintain a short list of recommended deadpools.
Six Feet Under was the "official" television program of Dead People Server. It slipped at times, but it picked up again dramatically during its last season.
