Jackson County Obituary Index
The Jackson County Obituary Index lists Michigan deaths, funerals, internments and obituaries as listed in the Jackson County newspapers from 1847-1879 and is free for researchers to use.
To date, our volunteers have reviewed 20 different newspaper titles and compiled over 25,000 entries. The work is ongoing so check back for updates.
As well as the obituary index, it includes an index appendix, a sheet that tells you ‘What We Did and Why We Did It’, the project history and a list of the participants.
You can view individual index listings on Newsbank.com or on microfilm at the Carnegie Library, 244 W. Michigan Avenue, Jackson, Michigan, 49201.
