The Mount Carmel Area Public Library Obituary Index

The Mount Carmel Area Public Library Obituary Index and Military Information was compiled by Robert Miller from his reading through newspapers from 1860 to 1963 covering our service area.  An act of love done to the best of his ability, the index may still be incomplete or incorrect.  Mr. Miller compiled this index for the Mount Carmel Area Public Library and it is copyrighted material.  


The index is listed alphabetically by Last Name, along with the date the obituary appeared in the newspaper (NOT the date of death. Whenever possible, the page on which it appears is also included.  If you live in the area please feel free to stop at the library and ask to use the microfilm reader/printer.  Once again, special thanks to Mr. Robert Miller, whose time and energy made this resource possible.  


Library has access to area newspapers up to 2006.
