INTRODUCTION: To "Index, Emporia Gazette Death Notices 1892-1989"

by Robert A. and Lois L. Hodge -1994

Microfilmed backfiles of the EMPORIA (Kansas) GAZETTE newspaper found in the Emporia Public Library and the William Allen White Library of Emporia State University covering the period 1892 through 1989 were used interchangeably for the purpose of preparing this index. It was later determined these collections may have been prepared from different negatives, as a result some entries may not be found on one or the other of the individual collections.

The images were SCANNED {NOTE: with eyes not a scanner}, starting with 1989, for reports of deaths and funerals. Until the mid-1920's these reports were typically found collectively under a designated heading and no page/column numbers were recorded. When, in the mid-1920's the designated heading was not used, page numbers were, at first, recorded and then replaced with a page / column reference proceeding the issue date. Entries found with an "s" indicate they appear in a "special reel" located at the William Allen White Library of Emporia State University--not in the "normal" run of the EMPORIA GAZETTE.

The microfilmed backfiles were found to be incomplete, particularly in the earlier periods; some photography resulted in such poor imaging that accurate reading was nearly impossible, thus the record is known to be 'incomplete'. Likewise, some errors exist because of converting the initial hand-written notes to the typed computer data base, but most of these will be easily reconcilable by the researcher.

The completed works of 1638 pages, {almost 100,000 obits}, exclusive of the maiden-name cross references, is bound in four volumes as follows:

A-E, pages 1 through 420

F-K, pages 421 through 815

L-R, pages 816 through 1258

S-Z, pages 1259 through 1638

A fifth volume was prepared cross-referencing maiden names to married surnames when the female names were given. For information on how to purchase these books check out the FHGS PUBLICATIONS site.
