Herald death record
August 1996


This is The Herald's page-one list of obituaries we have published. Names are listed by the day their death was first reported in The Herald. In some cases, only a partial obituary appeared the first day. The actual date of death is in parentheses.

We offer this database as a way to let readers search for friends who have died or search to find dates of obituaries so they may buy a back issue of the paper. Until we add bells and whistles, scroll through it line by line or use your Web browser to search.



How to use Netscape Navigator to search this file:

We have additional death record lists back to October 1995 and electronic archives of the entire obituaries from mid-January 1996 to date. Eventually they will be posted on the Web site. A few test samples already area posted. If you desperately need a particular obit, e-mail the person's name and date of death to herald@pgh.net. As time permits, we will e-mail the text to you or post that day's obituaries.

If you happen to see a stray ``cq'' in the text, it is a copyeditor's notation that a spelling or fact looks odd but is correct.
