Early 20th Century Obituaries

Revived from the archives by Virgina Woodward

View some examples of the early 20th century way of notifying family and friends about the passing of a loved one. The Lynn-Heidelberg Historical Society has many of these notices on display.

Before the internet and before printed newspapers were readily available to be delivered to an area like ours, it was necessary for the family to send funeral notices to their friends and family telling them about the death of a loved one and when and where the services would be held.
