  1. The charge is $3.00 per record (not per person - some people have several obits and other sources.) Research can be delivered by the U.S. Postal Service or by e-mail. If you do have an e-mail address, include it, as well as your name, address, and citations when you contact the library. If we have your e-mail address, we may be able to scan and e- mail the documents to you faster.

  2. Make a list of the name and the citation - newspaper name or abbreviation, date, page, column. Mail the check or money order made out to "Tiffin-Seneca Public Library" for amount - (number of obits or records X $3.00). (Any newspaper items that are from page 1, column 1 are free because of their brevity.)

  3. Requests are limited to three obituaries at a time. Upon delivery, three more obituaries may be requested.
  4. We do not know what is in the article until after the search is done. The record you receive may or may not be an obituary. It could also be a long or a short obituary. The library has indexed brief death notices, marriage announcements, divorces, reunions etc., all of which can be valuable when compiling your family history.
