Obituaries and Death Notices
1872 through 1894, and selected later dates
This index contains obituaries and death notices of York county residents, and their families. It also includes obituaries and death notices of those who died outside of the area but had ties to York County residents, and those in nearby counties as often the location of death and burials crossed the county lines. Many of the older articles are very brief.

If you do not have access to the microfilmed newspapers, you can order copies from the York County Historical Association (address below) or the Nebraska State Historical Society. Be sure to include the person's name, the newspaper, newspaper dates, pages and columns for every article you want a copy of. If ordering from York County Historical, the cost is $1 per name even if there were multiple articles on the person, plus $2 for shipping and handling for each order you place. For example, if you are ordering death notices/obituaries for five people the cost would be $5 for the articles ($1 each), plus $2 for shipping and handling a total of $7 for that order.
