You can search for obituaries by name in the Local History & Obituary Index. If you find a citation and would like to view the full obituary, you may request that we scan it and send you a copy. An obituary request form is online and there is a fee of $5 per obituary to have it scanned and emailed. 

If you have a Richland Library card you may be able to find the obituary in NewsBank, which includes The State newspaper as well as other SC Historical newspapers. If you live in SC you can also access NewsBank with a SC State Library card, available for free for all SC residents.

We hope this index will help you research your family history. If you have questions please call the Local History Department at (803) 929-3402.
