How to search

Enter one search term per box.

If you want to browse an entire year, enter the year in the first box.

If you want to browse an entire decade, enter the first three digits of the decade in to the first box (example: 191).

Searches for names like Smith, Green, etc will give results that include Smithson, Greene, etc. You can further limit these results by entering a first name, first initial, or year in the second search box.

Searches are "AND searches", meaning both search terms must be found in the record for the record to be returned.

Partial information will help limit your search results. Even just a first initial (first name, middle name, etc) can cut search results in half when used with a last name.

The date listed in this index is the date(s) the obituary appeared in the newspaper, not the date of death.
