Please note: We will process your request as soon as possible, but please allow 1 - 2 weeks. Obituary requests may be handled by supplying the requestor with information on where and how to obtain the obituary. We will supply the obituary if we can obtain it without any cost to the Library; however, the PWPL cannot guarantee that an obituary will be located. Requests may take awhile for finding and processing of the requested information, so please plan ahead.  

If you have questions about your obituary research request or would like to speak to Staff before sending this form, call 906.226.4311 to reach the Reference Desk.
