How to Order Obituaries from the Coshocton Public Library
Please order no more than five obituaries at a time. Upon receipt of the completed request, you may request an additional five names.
Each order should include your full name, a complete postal or email address and any obituary citations found.
Obituaries may be sent to you by means of a PDF attachment to an email or by post. In both cases there is a charge of $3.00 per obituary. Payment may be made by means of a check or money order made out to Coshocton Public Library.
In the case of an email attachment, no payment is required up front. Payment is due on your receipt of the obituary.
In the case of a photocopy sent by postal mail, we require that you provide a (large enough) stamped and self-addressed envelope. Payment should be sent with the SASE.
No telephone requests are accepted. Requests may be made

All requests are answered in chronological order, as they are received. The turn-around time is usually about two weeks.
Our online obituary index is complete from 1910 to within six months of the present. Obituaries for the period 1826 to 1909 are being added online by volunteers, but are available in paper format. A request for a particular obituary or for a list of names with the same surname may be made.
Of course, it is always possible for the researcher to visit the Coshocton Public Library in person. Copies of the obituaries on site are only $.10 each. For information about hours and location, try our web site: www.coshoctonlibrary.org.
