Medina County Gazette Obituary Index
This obituary index covers obituaries from the Medina County Gazette, dating from 6 September 1996 through current. The library keeps the paper copies of the Gazette until we receive the microfilm.
The card file in the Franklin Sylvester Genealogy Local History room covers the obituaries from 1850 up to 30 June 1997. Obituaries did not become a regular feature of the local news reporting until the mid 1870's.
It is the result of the continuing efforts of volunteers at the Medina County District Library to provide this valuable tool for those who have an interest in the people and the history of Medina County. There have been many volunteers over the years working on the obituary index project. The card file is the result of their efforts and we thank them.
Most particularly, we wish to thank Dorothy Morris, who when the card index became too full to hold anymore index cards, bravely took on the task of entering the obituaries into a computer database, even though she had only a limited knowledge of computers. Dorothy, you are a gem!
