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 and which to see the actual obituary, 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.  WE DO HAVE ACCESS TO PAPERS UP UNTIL 2006 AND CAN DO A SEARCH UP UNTIL THEN.


The Microfilm machine and the newspapers on Microfilm are available during library hours.  Please be aware that due to our limited staff there may not always be someone available to help with the Microfilm.  During Saturday hours there is only one person on staff therefore one on one help with the Micorfilm machine is not available on Saturdays, although you may still come in and use the machine.
