* Articles published before 1923: This is the easy case. Any news article published in the United States before 1923 is in the public domain and you can reprint or republish it in any form you’d like without any copyright concerns.

Please keep the above in mind... if you would still like to have an obituary removed from a memorial's photo section, please transcribe the obituary into the bio section, include the newspaper info (found by clicking on the newspaper image), and let me know through any of my memorials. I will then remove it... although I hope you will like having the original.

Seeing the original obituary is very gratifying to most people. It also saves time and eliminates errors.

Currently I am on the "hunt" for missing obituaries and don't have time to transcribe each one of them.

Thank you for understanding!!!


I will also do obituary look-ups for Ottumwa Courier 1932-1987.

You may contact me through any of my "Memorials Managed" then click Edit, then click Suggestion.

Please provide the FAG Memorial #, full name of deceased (including maiden name, if known), date of birth, date of death, or as much as you know. I will also need an email address to send the obituary to.

I do not live in Ottumwa so I cannot do other research.
