Studying up on your family history? Now you can quickly and easily search local obituaries without coming in to a library!

Our brand new obituary search en gine lets you search by name, partial name, maiden name, date, city, and age. Once you've found the obituary, we'll be happy to pull a copy for your records.

(Please note: Our records for 1985 - 1989 are incomplete. In addition, the year 2006 is missing from this database. If you need an obituary from a missing year, please use our Ask a Librarian form and we will look it up for you! )
