Following are listed Vanderburgh County resources that are available. If you have Vanderburgh Books or Reference Materials for sale, please let me know for inclusion on this page.
Each set of records is a compilation of the actual images of the listed records. They are exact replicas of the original records. All records were digitally enhanced where needed, and converted to .pdf images to provide ease of viewing. Adobe Acrobat Reader is the ideal viewer for this medium. The free reader is available online.
Vanderburgh Co., IN Records Available:
Johann Funeral Home Registers 1896 & 1901: $5.00
The actual images of these two registers, of the Johann Funeral Home, give varied information about the deceased. The record usually lists person who ordered the funeral, age, disease, date of death, place of burial, type of coffin, and price. The second page of the record has a break down of the costs and special notes in the remarks column. The compilation includes indexes to each register.
I am available to do obituary look ups from local newspapers for a small fee.
I live in Vanderburgh County and will search the local newspapers for the obituary or death notice you request.
The fee of $5.00/name is for the search to find the obituary or death notice.
The results will be sent to you as a digital copy, by email.
If you request a hard copy the fee is $7.00/name.
Payment must be made prior to the search. I will accept a USPS money order or PayPal. The search will be done within 2-5 days of receipt of payment and results sent to you promptly.
You may request a look up by sending an email to:
In the subject line please place the words:
Vanderburgh County Obituary Look Up
In the body of the email please include the following information on the person whose obituary you are requesting:
Parent's name, if the deceased is a child:
Date of death:
Location where they died:
Note: Not every person has an obituary or even a death notice. Often times women are listed as Mrs. Husband's Name and not by their own name, so you would want to include a spouse's name to help find a married woman , even if she is a widow.
