PROCEDURES FOR REQUESTING OBITUARIES: A SERVICE FOR NON-LOCAL USERS ONLY

We have all of the Saginaw News on microfilm and can print the obituaries using our microfilm readers.  Users outside of city limits may request up to five obituaries.  You can send the names only, or the names with information you found in the index (newspaper citation).     If you do not find a name on the index, we can conduct a microfilm search if you can provide a close-to-exact death date for the individual.  Once you receive the physical obituaries by mail, you may place another request of up to five names. 

Remember to provide your mailing address each time you contact us.  There is no fee for this service; however, we gladly accept donations.  Checks may be made payable to the Public Libraries of Saginaw.  To place your request, you may contact us by phone: (989) 755-9827, by email: plosgene@saginawlibrary.org, or by letter.  Should you wish to send us a letter, you may write to the following address:
