Adams Publishing Group, publisher of the Cambridge News & Deerfield Independent, has partnered with as the software provider and online platform for obituaries starting Monday, May 3.

Legacy will host the obituary page online, but for readers, the obituaries will be accessible on the News & Independent site as they always have. The obituaries in the print edition will be unchanged.

Once they click on the links on the newspaper web site, readers will seamlessly head to the Legacy web site to view the obituary and related information. The site will allow for easy social sharing, create a permanent online obituary, provide a guest book moderated and managed by Legacy, offer helpful links to charities and online resources, and feature community pages that group obituaries based on interest, hobbies and school or group affiliations. Death notices, the abbreviated announcements will not be affected by the change.
