RCGS has a collection of over 47, 000 obituaries, obituary notices and death articles in our files. Please note that some of these can be quite lengthy and some are very brief. Early obituaries are sometimes the only source for information on an ancestor as birth and deaths were not recorded in Ohio until 1867.
These obituaries come mostly from donations. If you have obituaries that you do not see in our index, we would welcome copies for our files. You may mail a copy to us, or send a scanned copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
