If you are not local or cannot make it to the Library to look up obituaries, we offer a look-up and email transmission service for obituaries posted in the Altoona Mirror for a fee of $5.00 per obituary. Please follow the steps below to submit a request. Since 2016, we have sent requests to all 50 states and to seven countries!
Please be aware that the library is not responsible for the content of the obituaries. Obituaries vary greatly by scope and length. The library is not responsible for assuring your request is the person you are looking for. There are no refunds. Obituaries are usually processed within one to three business days.
*ATTENTION: Please note that although in some cases two dates are listed for an obituary in our database, it is not necessary to pay twice. The $5.00 charge is for each person’s obituary, not each time they are mentioned in the paper.
