Death Notice Request Form
The cost is $5.00 per request. Once payment is received, a volunteer will be assigned to handle your request. Please be patient as this service is supported by only a few volunteers. Turn around time varies depending on the availability of the microfilm. Please also understand that we can only handle requests for obituaries that are cited in the above indexes. If you need additional assistance, we can refer you to a local researcher. If you would prefer to pay by check, please print out a mail-in request form and send it in with payment.
