Before requesting an obituary search please make sure that the date of death is covered below. An exact date of death is required. A $10 donation in the form of a money order made payable to the Upshur County Public Library is required for each obituary. The donation is not refundable, so again please check the dates above. Library staff can not do extensive searches and searches are done as time permits. Local patrons are required to do their own obituary searches. This service is only available to patrons living too far from the library to visit.
