Over 85,000 Obituaries Indexed!!
These page's are dedicated to Jeanette Rekow

Not all pages are Obituaries, there are other things like births, marriages, anniversaries, people who are visiting from another area, accidents, suicides, murders and the like. 90% are obits. If you prefer only an obit, please let me know. There are also a couple of books where only the vital information was collected. This was due to copy costs and having to pay out of pocket. If this be the case you will get the name of the newspaper, date, name and date of birth & death. A copy could be procured from the Shawano County Library. Their number is 715-526-3829
These Obituaries are from the local Newspapers
Shawano County Journal
Volksbote-Wochenblatt (Old German newspaper)
Oconto County Reporter
Antigo Daley Journal
and odds and ends of other local newspapers.
This Index is typed as the name appears in the newspapers so please consider alternative spellings.
To receive a copy of the obituary please include your full name and snail mail address (we do not email Obits) Click on the link at the top of each page and fill in the email.
Copies are 50 cents each plus postage.
There are some books with more then one page listed. The first number is the book number and the next is the page. If there are two numbers after the book number there are 2 pages, it usually means the first one is in German and the second one is translated. If you prefer for me to check and do not want the German page please let me know.
If there are more then one person listed under the same name PLEASE include something about that person like the year, spouse, children anything that will better help us send you the right Obit.
In order to better nail down the right person I have included a chart stating the Book Number and the years it will cover along with the names of the Newspapers involved. (See chart below) Perhaps this will help the researcher to find his or her ancestor.
I am frequently asked how many obituaries can I request. Answer, as MANY as you want.
Some have said when they try to email me it goes to Outlook which they do not have or use. You can copy and paste my email addy from here. firstname.lastname@example.org

It took us well over a year to get these Obits Indexed together but we finally finished this project. Thanks to some hard working people who took the time to help out. Thanks to Sandy, Jean, Luon, Kathleen, Jennifer, and a special thanks to the lady who took charge of these records throughout the past 40+ years and put them together in books, translated the German to English, Jeanette Rekow. Jeanette works long hours and a lot of patience has to be had to group the massive stacks and put them together. Even with failing eyesight she keeps moving on for the cause which is to preserve the past and share what we have. All is important says she! And I think all of you will share her thoughts in seeing her great work at preserving the past. She is a special person who set out to achieve a goal which I think she has accomplished. Her ancestor's will be proud of her long and hard work as I know I am.
I want to THANK all the people who made this happen, if you brought old newspapers in from out of town with the locals being mentioned to the ones who typed them all out. Your contribution to all who seek the families of the past will be so appreciated by others.
