For those interested in Genealogy, the WCPL provides downloadable Cem-Obit spreadsheets. These sheets combine obituaries from our local papers, local cemetery records, and other sources. These databases can be found within the Genealogy and Local History portion of our research section.
There is a brief explanation of what is included in this ever-evolving treasure of information but you can get the most from your research if you’ll first take the time to read the pages under the link called “Cem-Obit Index Notes and Abbreviations.” Patrons are often stunned at the amount of info available to them from home. And even in this time of distancing, we’ll still answer your questions if you use the email link. Happy hunting!
