The index to obituaries for The Evangelical Messenger, the English-language, weekly denominational publication associated with the Evangelical Church, has been updated again. The index now covers 1848-1929 and contains 142,000 entries. Indexed by both the decedent and his or her spouse, the index provides the date and page number of the obituary. Since The Genealogy Center owns the newspaper on microfilm, copies of specific obituaries may be ordered by emailing Genealogy@ACPL.Info with the complete citation as found in the index. Cost is $2.50 per obituary, billed at the time of mailing. Your complete name and mailing address must be included with your request. Take some time and browse The Evangelical Messenger Index or one of our other free databases.
