We will do a limited number of obituary requests from the indexed obituaries.

  1. Queries must be accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope.
  2. There is a $6.00 nonrefundable fee per individual obituary requests. The query must include the name and date of death of the person whose obituary is requested.
  3. For requests other than an obituary search, you will be billed $12.00 per hour, minimum, with a bill being sent along with any results found.

The library does not have a genealogy staff, so we are not able to do requests over the phone.
