The Obituary Index began in 1998 as a project built and maintained by the MOLO Regional Library System on behalf of the Massillon Public Library Massillon, Ohio.
A group of dedicated volunteers at the Massillon Public Library have undertaken the extensive task of indexing just the obituaries from local papers in their collection to aid in genealogical research. A number of years have already been covered and are now available online, but it will take time to complete the project. New records are being added all the time so stop back often. In addition, a few other libraries from throughout Ohio have joined in on the task of adding their local newspaper obituaries to this database as well.
The Obituary Index can be found through this link.
