We have 50,000+ obituaries in our library that are an invaluable research tool. They help fill in gaps and can help piece and bind our family’s history together.

We have been clipping them from local newspapers for many decades as well as having hundreds of them donated to us over the years. Our volunteers have also spent countless hours scouring through newspaper microfilm collecting even more obituaries from the late 1800s to early/mid 1900s.

Please call or email us with a list of names that you are interested in and we will be glad to help you with them.
