Obituary Index From The Ferguson Library, Stamford, Connecticut

The Ferguson Library in Stamford, Connecticut has made available online an index of obituaries from seven local newspapers, some dating back as far as 1830, and one including up to the present day.

The landing page includes instructions on how to locate an obit and a phone number and email address you can use to order a full copy of the obit. To get to the search form, click on the "Obituary Index" link found in instruction number 1.

After you enter your search terms, you will get a list of hits. To see more detailed information, click on the magnifying glass to the left of the name of interest. That will take you to an entry showing record number, name, date of paper (and extended information if any), and page number. Use this information to confirm it is your person of interest and to order the actual obituary.
