The following index of Albany County obituaries that have appeared in Laramie newspapers have been abstracted by members of the Albany County Genealogical Society. Obituaries are of present or past Albany County residents, those who died in Albany County, or those who have been buried in Albany County. These have been compiled by the Albany County Genealogical Society and abstracted from the Laramie newspapers found in the Albany County Library. The listings are alphabetical by surname. Whenever possible, the maiden name of the wife is included and is listed in the surname index (see below). Normally all obituary notices of an individual are listed.
Listings of the year 1900 were obtained from microfilm at the University of Wyoming Coe Library. Most were from the weekly and semi-weekly editions of the Boomerang (SWB) [film # 93-00-135]. A few for October-December were from the Laramie Daily Boomerang (LDB) [film # 93-00-95]. This microfilm is not available at the Albany County Library for the year 1900. Obituary data for 1901 - 1906 are on microfilm at the Albany County Library. The year 1901 is in poor photographic condition and some issues are missing. Issues after 1906 are bound volumes in the Library.
Listings in this section are for 1900 through 1940. Early issues (1901 - 1906) were taken from microfilm copies kept at the Albany County Library. Some newspaper issues are missing, especially Aug. 6 - Aug 31, 1904.January - June of 1918 are indexed but available only on microfilm.
The years after 1940 have not been abstracted (there are a few random records recorded after 1940).
For listing of obituaries and burials for records from 1870 to 1900, the reader may wish to reference "Laramie, Wyoming Burials 1867 to 1900" by Ellen (Crago) Mueller, [WYO 929.1 M887a] in the Albany County Library. The dates given by Mueller were often dates of death and not of newspaper issues. She includes cemetery and church records which were not abstracted and may not be included in this present listing.
