Obituaries, if indexed in http://www.lib.oak-lawn.il.us/olpl/Obits/Obits.htm, are $3; if not indexed but death date is known I will search a local newspaper for two weeks from death. My charge for that is $5. Sorry, I can't browse newspapers if death date is not known. If your obit is not indexed, I can try some other resources: The Chicago Trib 1971 to date; Southtown, 1924 to date; Sun Times, 1979 to date. I don't have access to any other papers, except those listed above.
