The Obituary Index developed through the work of researchers who have researched their ancestors in the newspapers we have in the Newspapers on Microfilm Collection. Our index does not contain every obituary or death notice in every newspaper have in our collection.
To view obituaries found in the index, please make note of the full name, newspaper title, city of publication, date, page and column numbers. Provide staff with the newspaper title, city of publication and date so they can pull the necessary roll of microfilm. Staff will then provide you with the microfilm to look up the obituary based on the information from the index.
If you cannot find your ancestor or person of interest in the index, please see a staff member with the name, newspaper title or city, and date. We will pull the needed roll of microfilm for you to look up the obituary or death notice.
If you would like to add to the obituary index, please see staff.
