Local Obituary Index

This database contains more than 240,000 indexed local obituaries dating back to 1985.

This is an index to over 240,000 obituaries and death notices found in the following newspapers from the period January 1, 1985 to the present: Beverly Review, Blue Island Forum, Blue Island Sun Independent, Daily Southtown, Oak Lawn Independent, Reporter, Southtown Economist, SouthtownStar, Southwest Courier, Southwest News-Herald, and the Star. Although designed as a name index, many of the entries will also include maiden name, date of death, and place of death, in addition to name, date, and page citation of the newspaper. The Oak Lawn Library does not subscribe to all these titles.
