Many requests are made for obituary notices and this
would be a good genealogical resource, as well as providing obits to
extended family members who may not have an original.
Searching for obituaries from previous years (mainly prior to 2003)
requires a good deal of time. If you have found this to be a
valuable resource and would like to be a
sponsor toward keeping the obituaries page updated, send donations to History of
Hartford Obituaries, Emma Sefcik, 59320 62nd St, Hartford MI
49057. Since the History of Hartford website is a voluntary
effort, your contribution is much appreciated.
Email the webmaster with any correction of errors that may have
occurred in the original newspaper obit.
