Overview:

An ongoing project indexes the obituaries for several Mennonite and Amish newspapers. The weekly newspapers are for the Mennonite Church (MC) in North America. They reflect the current diversity of origins in Mennonite Church U.S.A.

Main index currently includes 77,180 names. Check the site often for additions. The site can be searched by name in a main index, a maiden name index, and a yearly index for each publication.  The site is very easy to use.
