Genealogy information from the A. P. O’Donnell Funeral Home
We have good records consisting of obituary cards and automobile lists for most of our funeral services dating back to 1960. The obituary cards usually provide the names of a loved one’s mother, father, his or her occupation and the names of children and living brothers and sisters. The majority of our records prior to 1960 back to as early as 1900 consist of funeral log books comprised of more limited or basic information. We may only provide photocopies of the records. To request records please send us a clearly printed or typed request detailing the information you require concerning a relative’s funeral and your relationship to the deceased. As time permits, we respond only to written request.
