The Auglaize County Public District Library participates in adding obituaries to the Rutherford B. Hayes Obituary Index for local newspapers that are kept and collected by the library in Wapakoneta.
The charge is $2.50 per obituary (not per person - some people have several obits). If an obituary is located, it will be sent to you. If the library is unable to locate an obituary, you will still be assessed the $2.50 SEARCH FEE for each person listed.
The request must include the newspaper name or abbreviation, date, page and column.
Mail requests with a check made out to the Auglaize County Public District Library for the amount: number of searches X $2.50
To: Auglaize County Public District Library
203 S. Perry St.
Wapakoneta, OH 45895
There is no credit card option. The check will have to be mailed and received before the research is initiated.
The obituaries will be mailed as soon as we can get them. We will attempt to complete the request within a week of the receipt of the patron's check.
Patrons are welcome to come to the library to research the information. The copiers are coin-operated for $.15 per page.
