Help us Grow our Obit Collection

We have over 157,000 items in our obit collection and would love to have more. Would you share copies of the obituaries you have collected over the years?

We can take them in any format (your transcription, a photocopy, a picture) but there are a few caveats:

  1. None after 2017 because they are most likely already online.
  2. None that you found online at a newspaper site…. No point in our preserving them when they are already easily available.
  3. They need to be sourced – if not the full citation then at least the time period and geographic location.

Bring them to the Library and drop them at the Aide’s desk with your contact information or email them to Diana Wittenberg at
