*How To Order Obit Copies*
If you live near to Omaha, you are welcome to visit the microfilm room, 3rd floor of Omaha Public Library’s W. Dale Clark location at 215 S. 15th St., Omaha, Nebraska to get copies of any of the obits that you need. Hours are 10:00 to 8:00 M – Th, 10:00 – 6:00 F & Sa, 1:00 – 6:00 Su. The library is closed on holidays, occasionally for two days.
If visiting the library in person is not an option for you, there are three other ways you can order obit copies. Choose ONE (and only one!) of the options below, and carefully follow its instructions):
Option 1) Send a letter to the Greater Omaha Genealogical Society at the following address:
Greater Omaha Genealogical Society
PO Box 4011
Omaha NE 68104-4011
Provide them with the information exactly as it appears on the Omaha Obits web site. The charge is $5.00 per copy.
(Note: do not use the above address if you have chosen Option #2. The address for Option #2 is different.)
Option 2) Send an email to: TheGenLady@Gmail.com
Please provide the information exactly as it appears on the web site.
The charge is $5.00 per copy. If you have 6 or more copy requests in the same email, every 6th copy is free.
When we have your order ready (which is usually the the day after we receive your request), we will send you an email with instructions on where to send your check.
Option 3) You may have the library staff obtain copies for you (limit of 3 obits per request, please). Research fees apply. They will do up to 30 minutes of research IF they are given:
1. the name of the person
2. date of death
3. $20 in advance, checks made out to: Omaha Public Library.
The address to send the $20 check to is:
Omaha Public Library
215 South 15th St.
Omaha, NE 68102.
Important! If you order obit copies from the above Genealogy Research address, please make sure you are sending them the correct fee amount!
