Goshen Genealogy: Obituary Index

A guide to the genealogical resources in the Local History Collection at the Goshen Public Library.

Obituary Finder

Use our Online Obituary Finder to search for obituaries for people from in and around the Goshen area.

Our Obituary Index includes notices published as early as 1820 and it's kept up to date through the present day, covering all obituaries published in the local Goshen newspaper, the Independent Republican.

How to use the Online Obituary Finder.

1.  Look up a person by name, maiden name, spouse or other family, date of birth or death. 
2.  When you find the record for the person you are looking for, it will contain the source information for their obituary. 
3.  You can use the source information associated with the obituary to locate it in our obituary collection in the Local History Room at the library, or we can mail you a photocopy of the obituary for a small processing fee of $1.00. (We do not offer scanning, or emailing of obitiuaries as of yet.)
