The Reference Department will search for and provide copies, as available, of obituaries for people who resided in or died in San Luis Obispo County. Searches will only be done on receipt of a letter giving names, dates and whatever other information the sender has and must include payment by check or money order. Please include your email address in your letter to facilitate any questions that might arise.

Reference Fees:

Obituary Searches:

If you do not have a death date, you might want to try these indexes:

Local History Searches (Not Obituaries) OR General Research ;

$15.00 per ½ hour of research.

Please include any names, places, dates or other information that might help in the search. This is very important. Most of the first 120 years of the local newspapers ARE NOT INDEXED. Searching past the first half hour will only be done if the Librarian believes there is a reasonable chance of further information being found. Before extra charges are incurred the patron will be contacted. Please include your email address in your letter to facilitate any questions that might arise.
