Individual documents and records available by mail order from Cornerstone Genealogical Society
These records are available for purchase by members and non-members.
We have a
vast collection of Obituaries. Obituaries can be found in numerous
resources in our library. Our
indexes (Obituaries on Micro-film and in Books) includes a listing for all
obituaries in these resources, so some may be duplicates.
It would be helpful to our research staff if you would include known
information regarding the individual you’re seeking, so that we can then
determine the correct obituary. Include
known information such as parents, spouse, children, where they lived,
etc. Dates listed for the Obituaries on Micro-film are the
newspaper publication date of the obituary or death notice.
Index for obituaries can be found on these links:
Obituaries on Micro-Film
Obituaries in Books
The cost is $3.00 per obituary and a large self-addressed, stamped envelope should be included with your request (keep in mind that extra postage should be added if more than four are requested - figure about about four pages per ounce). Remember that earlier (pre-1890) death notices/obituaries may be only a line or two noting an individual's death.

Wills and Estate Records
Original Will and Estate Records 1796-2002 are available for order from our library. These records were computerized by the Greene County Courthouse in Waynesburg, Pa. and made available to our library. We cannot guarantee that all of these records are complete, nor can we be responsible for the quality of the documents. If we find that our printed quality of a specific individual record is poor, we will direct you to contact the Courthouse to obtain a photocopy of the original document. We can only send what is available in our library.
An index for the Wills and Estates can be found on the following link:
