Macomb County Obituary Index Updated

Mount Clemens Public Library and the Macomb County Genealogy Group are pleased to announce an update to the Macomb County Obituary Index. This update adds almost 14,000 records to the database which now totals 202,336 records.

The obituary indexing of the Richmond Review is now complete for all available newspapers between 1911 and 1967. A special thank you to Pat Hendrickson who completed the indexing, and to the Richmond Area Historical & Genealogical Society, for making these newspapers available to Mount Clemens Public Library.

We are also grateful to Janith Hopp who has been indexing the obituaries from the Romeo Observer for the 1950s and 1960s. These papers have not been microfilmed, and are not available at MCPL, but Jan has agreed to make digital images available through the Macomb County Genealogical Research Assistance Service.

And last but not least, we thank Karen Brewer, Ann Faulkner, Mary Freer, Carolyn Horton, Sue Long, and Herb Savage for their ongoing help with this project.
