Obituary Request

Obituary Request

The Local History Room provides access to obituaries and death notices published in the Barberton News, Barberton Herald, Barberton Leader, and Barberton Post. Obituaries from the Akron Beacon Journal are also available from 1960-present.

A fee of $1.00 is charged per obituary. Payment is accepted in the form of cash, check, or money order. This small fee helps offset the cost of this service and ensure continued access.

Indexes are available for alphabetical searching for all newspapers.

The requested obituaries will be sent via email unless otherwise specified. To request copies sent through the U.S. Mail, please provide your mailing address. Requests are generally fulfilled within 5 to 7 business days.

Please contact the Local History Room if you do not receive your requested obituary within 2 weeks.
