Staff will search for one individual in up to two different newspapers per request. It is very important to include the date (e.g. 07/28/1889), since most newspapers are not indexed.

Caution: If you have a death date that is before 1860 or from a location outside of Wisconsin, please email AskLibrary@wisconsinhistory.org before you place an order. We want to make sure we can find an available newspaper to locate an obituary. That time frame can be difficult to locate a newspaper in Wisconsin. There is no guarantee an obituary will be found. Payment covers the search time, regardless of whether a search is successful. The amount of information in an obituary may vary greatly. Newspapers in larger cities often contain death notices rather than full obituaries.
