Indexed obituaries can be a rich source of information about the way an individual lifed his or her life, their accomplishments, pursuit, and family members. It’s a very valued source for genealogists and we have a number of obituary indexes available for various periodicals in the MHSA library: Der Bote, Gospel Herald, Mennonite Life, etc. For a comprehensive list of Mennonite periodical obituary indexes, consult mennonites.ca for the geography of interest.
One project completed on behalf of the MHSA and available on our website is that of the Mennonite Brethren Herald. We hope to have more in the future.
