LOOKING FOR OBITS FOR "SOUTH SIDE" FAMILY MEMBERS ?
---------------------------------------------------

One source for South Side and south suburb OBITUARIES:
a newspaper: the "Chicago Heights Star" is one source.
	Check the LIBRARY section from the menu table on the RESOURCES page
        ... for the "Chicago Heights Public Library"
            You can contact one of their volunteers (or visit) and request info
            on how to obtain copies of OBITUARIES for the person you are researching.

	Check the SOCIETIES section from the menu table on the RESOURCES page
        ... for the "South Suburban Genealogical Society"
            Apparently, they have a copy of the Obit Index for that paper.
            List of dates available are not known but it appears they may have some
            issues prior to 1926.
            You can contact one of their members and request if they can provide info
            on how to obtain copies of OBITUARIES for the person you are researching.


Another source is the "Hammond Public Library".
	Check the LIBRARY section from the menu table on the RESOURCES page
        ... They have an online index for searching for OBITUARIES.
	    Scroll down the page to the "Local/Family History" section; click on link.
            You can search on-line databases of obituaries from 1940-1949 and 1998.
            They plan on adding more years as time permits.
