Kansas Obituary Records

Kansas is a beautiful place to call home and it is also a growing retirement destination for people from just about every other state. If you are searching for Kansas obituaries, all you need to do is figure out which county the person died in and then locate the public library in that county. For instance, the Allen County Newspaper Items Index is the source for all obits that have been published in the Neosho Valley Register. The Kansas State Historical Society maintains a search engine for death notices for members of fraternal orders, or you can check the Johnson County library website for access to the Johnson County Obituary Index, which has listings from 1977 to present day. Sedgewick County has its own USGenWeb website that contains information on Wichita obits from 1887-1910 and the Midwest Historical and Genealogical Society website has information on obits taken from the Wichita Eagle and Wichita Beacon newspapers from 1955-2003. The Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library is where you want to go if you are after Topeka area obits from 2004 to the present or for older listings from 1906-1935. Finding Kansas obituary records is easy as long as you know where to begin your search.
