The NLPL 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 New London Public Library in person... Copies of the obituaries on site are only $.15 each since you do the look-ups! For information about hours and location, try their web site:
