Ohio Obituary Index
Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library[edit | edit source]
The following information was provided by Rebecca B. Hill, Head Librarian, Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center. "The Ohio Obituary Index, hosted by the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library, is a large grassroots indexing project which was designed to index obituaries from newspapers, but also any other source that might be useful for local history: funeral home records, cemeteries, wills and estates, county histories, etc. A list of Other Sources indexed can be found on the site." Because of its popularity, 40 Ohio public libraries have become partners and are now entering their data and we would like to continue to add more Ohio libraries to the system. We have about 1.4 million names in the database.
