Local Vital Records Index Logo  

Welcome to the Local Vital Records Index. This database is an index to marriage announcements, anniversary notices and obituaries published in local newspapers. Years indexed are 1865 - January 1916, 1977 - 1985, 1993 - 1998 and 2002-current.

Newspapers indexed in this database include the Berlin Journal, the Green Lake County Reporter, the Markesan Regional Reporter, the Omro Herald and the Princeton Times-Republic. All newspapers named above include a Thursday “Feature Section”, which is an insert shared by all the papers published by Berlin Journal Newspapers. Items cited as appearing in the "Feature Section" may be found in any of the five newspapers. In addition, other newspapers serving these communities (including the Omro Journal, the Omro Union, the Omro Weekly Journal) are included as well.

Some of the newspapers listed above have full-text searching available (for issues dated after March 10, 2005) via the Wisconsin Newspapers Digital Research Site (search tips) on your library's Research Tools page. [Note: WNDRS is accessible only to Wisconsin residents with library cards.]

Indexing of newspapers published 1986 - 1992 and 1999 - 2001 is in progress.

Fill in one or more of the fields to the right, and for more advanced searching, please check out our search tips page.

Results are displayed alphabetically by name and include all variations of the name you enter. If you enter "smith" you will first see "Coppersmith" then "Goldsmith" and so on until you see "Smith."

Photocopies of notices may be requested by mail.
