PA Room: Obituaries

The PA Room has an extensive obituary index file, abstracted to the present.

In addition to the obituaries we have here in the library, we also have a PDF file of more recent obituaries available for download – Venango County, PA Obits: 2008 thru May 2011.  This is a very large PDF file containing more than 400 pages, so please click the link to begin the download and be patient.  You will need a PDF reader to view the document.  If you need a PDF reader, you can download Adobe Reader for free here.
