  1. You may also email a request and the Chapter will send the copies with an invoice. If you order by e-mail, be sure to include your mailing address. We do not send out obituaries by e-mail.

    Chapter volunteers will mail the copies of the obituaries as soon as they can process your request. The turn-around-time will depend upon the amount of traffic this web service generates.
It is always possible for you to visit the Center for Archival Collections in person where the only charge is for copies since you do the lookup. For information about their hours and location, visit their website

A number of local newspapers are also available at the Wood County District Public Library. For information about hours and location, visit their website:
