Searching Tips

  • Do not use a comma to separate first and last names.
  • The order is not important: first name last name, or last name first name.
  • The case is not important: john jones, John Jones, or JOHN JONES.
  • Search for first name or last name only, or for fragments of names; "libb" will bring up entries for people with first names "Libby" and "Libbie" as well as last name "Libby."
  • Advanced searching allows you to search for additional information, on its own or in combination. You can search for the address, city, and state of residence and also the decade of publication. Furthermore, you can search the "Notes" field for spouses' names, professional titles and degrees, veteran status, and more. (Not all records contain all information.)
  • Take a look at our help sheet.

The actual obituaries can be viewed in Local & Family History Services in Main Library. If you live at a distance, you can place a request for an obituary and local history search.
