An index from 1875 to 1999
Compiled by the Ridgefield Library

Volunteers at the Ridgefield Library compiled an extensive index of obituaries and death notices that appeared in extant issues of The Press from its beginning in 1875 through 1999.

The first date (third column) is birth; the second (fourth column), the date of the issue of The Press containing the obituary. (Note that various issues from the first 40 or so years of publication have been lost and thus the obituaries that appeared in them are lost.)

In some cases, especially in the 1870s or 1880s, the item indexed may be little more than a listing in the paper of people who died the year before. This is especially true if you see two issue dates and the second one is in January or February. We have no way of telling from the index whether a listing is a full obituary or a brief mention. However, if a birth year is given, odds are it's a full obituary.

We can supply photocopies of most obituaries for a fee of $4 each. You must supply the date the Press issue in which the obituary appears, not the death date; we cannot search for obituaries based on a death dates.
