Obituary Index

The Library has created an index of obituaries from all major Toledo-area papers and continues to update it as new issues of the Toledo Blade are published. If you find a person you are searching for, we can email a scan of the obit to you. Out-of-state residents are charged $3 per obituary scan.

When using the tool, it is recommended to use less search terms rather than try and be comprehensive. Start with just first name and last name and try an initial search, adding terms to narrow things down if you get an overwhelming number of responses. Search terms will have to match what has been listed in the index, so if a nickname is searched but the obituary used a full name, it might indicate a failed search by displaying zero results.
