How to Order Obituaries from the Ada Public Library

The Ada Public Library's newspapers have all been scanned and digitized and can be accessed at this website for free: http://ada.advantage-preservation.com/

If you would prefer the library staff look up your obituary here is the policy for that service:

The charge is $2.50 per obituary (not per person - some people have several obits.)
Make a list of the name(s) and the citation(s) - newspaper name or abbreviation, date, page, column.
Mail with check to "Ada Public Library" for amount - (number of obits multiplied by $2.50):
Chris Vermillion
Ada Public Library
320 N. Main St.
Ada, OH 45810

The APL staff will mail you the copies of the obits as soon as they can get to them. The turnaround time will depend on the amount of traffic this web service generates.

Of course, it is always possible for the researcher to visit the Ada Public Library in person. Copies made on-site are only $0.25/page. For information about hours and location, try their web site: http://www.adalibrary.org/

The Ada Public Library has only Ada newspapers. 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.
