Herald death record
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:
- Make sure this page is fully downloaded to your computer (don't start this process till you get the message ``document done'').
- Scroll back to the top of the screen.
- Click on the Find button at the top of the screen on the Netscape toolbar.
- Type some part of the name, address or date you are looking for.
(Tip: start with as little info as possible, such as ``Smith'' rather than ``John Q. Smith'' and ``Roemer'' rather than ``Roemer Boulevard''. It might be listed here without a middle initial, abbreviated or spelled differently. )
Click on OK.
- Repeat to keep skipping down the list (Mac users can hit command/g to search again down the list; there's probably a similar PC command)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
NOTE: In parts of this this month's list, the date of death has not been added, and a couple days are missing. We apologize for this (it will be updated eventually), and hope this partial information is more valuable than not posting these dates at all.
