About the Database

This database indexes the obituaries which appeared in the Anderson Daily Bulletin and Herald Bulletin from 1907 to 1997. The date which is given in the index is the date the obituary appeared in the newspaper and not necessarily the date of death. The actual text of the obituaries is not available online, but if you contact the Indiana Room we can provide either a paper copy or a scan of the obituary you want. We charge $1.00 per obituary regardless of how we provide it to you.

Tips for Searching:

  • A married woman might be listed as Mrs. John Smith instead of Mary Smith if that was the text used by the newspaper. Try searching Mrs. Smith as well.
  • Titles like Dr., Rev., Sgt., etc., will sometimes be part of a name listing. If you know your subject was a doctor, try searching for him as Dr. Smith.
  • A baby's obituary may be listed as Infant Smith rather than Billy Smith. Try both.
  • Nicknames listed in quotes, Example "Bob"
  • Maiden names listed in parentheses, example (Brown)
  • Infants who passed at birth or early age in brackets [infant]


Some of the obituaries listed will be accompanied by a letter indicating the newspaper source.  The microfilm for these newspapers is available in the Indiana Room.
