Antigo Newspaper Obituary Indexes

When Using These Indexes Note the Following:

1. The number in parenthesis after the year link is the number of obituaries indexed for that year.

2. Always consider listed death dates as approximate because many had to be calculated using imprecise language and unclear publication dates!

3. Question marks in the index indicate missing information. The number of question marks indicate how much important information is missing from the obituary. A lot of question marks also usually indicates it was a very short news item or is a very flowery obituary.

4. When I use the word "obituaries" I mean all of the following:

  • Short New Items. Many... but not all... obituaries written 75-100 years ago were short news items such as "John Doe died last Monday at home and his funeral was Thursday."
  • Death Notices. Death Notices lack most of the information about the person's life and family that Regular Obituaries contain.
  • Regular Obituaries. Regular Obituaries contain information about the person's life and family that is very useful to genealogy research.
  • News Obituaries. News Obituaries are about people from all walks of life. They may have made major public contributions to the community or just led interesting lives. Usually the article appears on page one of the newspaper. There may or may not also be a regular obituary on the usual obituary page.
  • CONSTRUCTION NOTE: I spend about two hours a day at the public library four days a week searching the newspaper microfilm gathering the obit information. Then I come home and spend another two hours on my computer writing the HTML for this information which makes the page you see on the website. At the time I am writing this, in September 2014, I have 54 more years to re-index, which I estimate will take about 4 1/2 to 5 years.
