Volunteers and staff at the Archive Center and Genealogy Department of the Indian River County Main Library have compiled an index of obituaries and death notices published in local newspapers from 1913 to 2011. The database includes more than 80,000 names. Nearly all of the obituaries are located on microfilm copies of the newspapers.
To Request a Look up:
You may request a look up of copies of obituaries listed in the index by email or regular mail. Please do not call the Archive Center and Genealogy Department to request lookups. Please limit your request to no more than four copies. If you have a need for five or more copies, please email the Archive Center and Genealogy Department with details. They will respond with an estimate of the costs to fulfill your request by regular mail. The charge for photocopies by regular mail is $5.00 for 5-10 obituaries.
PLEASE ALLOW TWO WEEKS FOR A RESPONSE.

Notes on the Obituary Index
The Indian River Obituary Index has been compiled over several years and before this web-based searchable database became available. We have adapted our data to work within the constraints of this database. “Section” refers to the microfilm number. Maiden names and nicknames are included in “Notes.” If an individual had information published on multiple days, there will be a separate entry for each day.
