  4. The genealogy staff will mail or e-mail your copies after payment is received. Copies will be sent as soon as possible.
Researchers can visit the Anderson Allyn Room in the Chardon Library in person and look up the obituary. It is recommended that you call 440-285-7601 and make an appointment ahead of time with the genealogist since the obituaries are in several locations. The cost for looking them up yourself is the copy charge.
