Jump to a different category of resources:
OBITUARY FILES | FUNERAL CARDS | LIBRARY HOLDINGS | MICROFILM INDEX
FAMILY HISTORIES | FAMILY HISTORIES SURNAME INDEX | HISTORY BOOK INDEX | HISTORY BOOK 2 INDEX |
ARCHIVE HOLDINGS | FINDING AIDS | WILL BOOK INDEX


There will be a $5 - $10 search fee--see below for more information


HINTS ON USING THE INDEXES:
Use your web browser's FIND feature to search for a particular name.

This page will be updated periodically--please check the date at the bottom of the page to
see when the most recent update has taken place.


NOTE: The dates listed in the obituary file are the dates the obituary was
published, not the date of death.

If a name is listed more than once in the index, it means that there is an obituary available from two
different papers or the same paper two different times.

If a name is listed with NDA following it, that means "No date available." Sometimes obituaries were
turned into PCGS with no citation information (such as the date the obit was published and the name
of the paper that it came from). The obituary itself is still available to be copied for you.


Obituary File Index updated December 2015

We ask for a $5 payment for each obit when the search is done by our research department.
If you come into our facility and do the work
yourself, the cost will only be 25 cents per page.


Arranged by first letter of last name. Please click on the letter of the file you need.
Please be patient as the pages load up. There are many names listed.

--To request a copy of an obituary in our index, please contact the research department
of PCGS at
info@pcgsmo.com with the name and date listed.
Payment is required before receipt of obituary.
*
For your information: SASE is a self-addressed stamped envelope. If you request a copy of
an obituary that is already listed in our index, you may go ahead and send your $5 payment
with a SASE to speed up the process.

--To request a copy of an obituary not listed, please contact the research department
and they will let you know the procedure for receiving a copy or copies.

For more information, see
here.

Presently our information database contains death records and obituaries on people
who have lived in Southwest Missouri - most within 50 miles of Polk County, Missouri. 

Some of the obituaries are from Ventura, CA newspapers--aka "Little Bolivar."
