If you find an obituary in the index, but are unable to visit the library, our local history expert can send a PDF of the notice to you. A $5 basic research fee is charged when you can supply the exact name and date for one to 5 obituaries. 6-10 obituaries is $10; 11 to 15 obituaries is $15. For this service, please email: email@example.com with all the information from the listing.
Advanced research fees begin at $15; these fees apply where dates are missing or only approximate. Please allow 1-2 weeks for the completion of research requests.
