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

effort, your contribution is much appreciated.
Email the webmaster with any correction of errors that may have
occurred in the original newspaper obit.
