  1. The charge is $2.00 per photocopied page of obituary (long obituaries or those continued in the next column or on another page may mean more than one page). Requests should include name, address, telephone number, and e-mail of the person making the request.
  2. Please cite all information found in the index, including full name of the deceased, maiden name where applicable if known, name of newspaper, date of paper, page and column numbers, and date of death if known. Please note that there are unfortunately some errors in the name of newspaper and the page and column listed in the index, but the date of paper is almost always accurate.
  3. Mail your request to:
Washington County Public Library
Local History & Genealogy Department
418 Washington Street
Marietta, OH 45750-1922

Requests can also be made via phone to 740-376-2172, by fax to 740-376-2175, or by e-mail to genealogy@wcplib.info.

  1. We will mail a copy of the obituary as soon as possible.
Of course, it is always possible for the researcher to visit the Washington County Public Library in person. Copies of the obituaries on site are $0.10 each and there is no postage/handling charge.

Washington County Public Library has Washington County newspapers on microfilm, also some from Athens, Monroe, Noble, and Morgan County and Wood and Pleasants County, WV, listed in this index. We cannot find obituaries without a date. For other newspapers listed in the Obituary Index, check the List of Newspapers under "Location" to verify which library owns the newspaper microfilm at http://www.rbhayes.org/hayes/index/list.asp.
