Index of Selected Death Notices Excerpted from
Headlines & History,
published 1999, Buffalo News

Compiled by "Steel City Gail"
Last updated: 1 August 2003

The following is excerpted from the book Headlines & History, published in 1999 by the Buffalo News. This book includes "snapshots" of the front pages of selected newspapers going back as far as 1882. During the period of 1882-1914, these front pages included a list of death notices. "Steel City Gail" (as she prefers to be called) transcribed the list and offers them here. This index can be used to help family researchers find the actual obituaries of their ancestors. Please contact Gail if you'd like greater detail about a particular listing. She may be able to provide more information. If you'd like to purchase the book, you can find more information here.

The date listed at the top of each group of names is the date the newspaper was published, not the death date of the individuals listed. The original from which this was compiled was extremely difficult to read. Errors are quite possible. Therefore, use as hints for future research, NOT as actual source data.
