How do I get an obituary for one of my ancestors?


First, check the obituary section of the Mercer County site.  If your ancestor is listed there, click on the name to go to the obituary and your search is over.  Go to the obituaries section.  If your ancestor is not listed there, read on.  


When.  First, when did they die?  You'll need a date of death to find an obituary.


If your relative died between May 23, 2000 and the present, their obituary may be on line at the website for The Herald, Sharon, PA newspaper.  These are filed by the date the obituary appeared in the newspaper, so check the death date and the next couple days.  Click here to go to the 2000-2001 archives.


If your relative or ancestor died between 1876 and 1929 or between 1952 and the present, the Mercer County Genealogical Society may be able to locate an obituary for you for a nominal fee.  Click here for more information.  Click here for the archive index for 1996-98.


If your relative or ancestor died between 1930 and 1951, be patient.  The Mercer County Genealogical Society is at work abstracting those obituaries from the local newspapers.
