Many requests are made for obituary
notices and this is a good genealogical resource, as well as
providing obits to extended family members who may not have an
original. Searching previous year obituaries (mainly prior to
2003) requires a good deal of time. If you 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 obvious errors that may have
occurred in the original newspaper obit.
