Query: Obituary and Other Lookups

Question: Does your society do research for folks who don’t live in your area? Do you look up obits? If yes, how do you want to be contacted and what is the rate? If no, does any other organization in the county look up obits?

Answer: We don’t charge for obituary lookups at this time. Members read this blog for query requests (which can be emailed to wcgstx@gmail.com) and, as time permits, a member volunteer does the lookup in our extensive collection of Wood County obituaries. We also have marriage, cemetery, and other vital record resources we can check if requested. We respond by email and also encourage members to share the obituary response here in case others inquire about that individual at a later date. More extensive research can also be performed if a member so volunteers, and any fees would need to be arranged with that member.

  1. It should be mentioned that we only have most obits from 1983 forward to present, as that was when our society started saving the obits. Any others will have to be looked up on microfilm of local papers and that will take much more time especially if that exact date is not provided. Myself and Shirley Bates can be contacted or other members, too.
