Midland County, Michigan Obituary Index, 1928–1950

Background

This file contains abstracts of obituaries published in the Midland County Republican and the Midland Daily News only. The years covered are 1928 through 1950. The total number of records are over 8000. A similar book published earlier by the Midland Genealogical Society includes a listing of the obituaries reported in three earlier Midland County newspapers and covered the years 1872 through 1927. The Republican was published from 1872 to 1937 at which time it became the Midland Daily News.

Acknowledgements

This project was made possible though the efforts of several people who abstracted and typed the original data. The editor would like to acknowledge and thank the following volunteers for their efforts. A big thanks goes to Virginia Parsons who did most of the transcribing from microfilm, a huge and time consuming job. Others who helped were Betty Bellows, Doug Applegath, Jeri Shangle and Nancy Lackie.

Source

Abstracts were made from the microfilm copies of the original newspapers in the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library, 1801 West St. Andrews Dr., Midland, MI 48640.

The entries in this book are only the deaths reported in the newspapers, not all the deaths that occurred in Midland County. Some deaths of relatives of residents, ex-residents and other notables are also included.

Many entries show more than one newspaper reference. This usually happened when the death was the result of an accident or some otherwise newsworthy event.

Other references that may be of help to genealogy researchers are the Midland County Obituary Index 1872–1927 and the Midland County Cemetery Records. Both books were published by the Society earlier and are available in the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library in Midland Michigan.
