Requests for Obituaries and other Event Notices from Solano County Newspapers


How can I get copies of Obituaries and other Event Notices from Solano County newspapers?
You can request copies of event notices by phone, mail or online.

 

To Request Online:
Use our Online Microform Photocopy Request form. An event date is required for staff to search. We will search for that date and up to two weeks after the date. Photocopies will be mailed.

 

To Request by Mail:
Use the Microform Photocopy Request form. Mail to the library closest to where the event occurred, from those listed below. Allow three weeks for a mail request to be filled.

 

To Request by Phone:
Call the library closest to where the event occurred, from those listed below. Provide the person’s full name, type of notice, date of event, place of event or last known address, and your mail and email addresses.

 

How much does it cost?
There is no charge for searching. There may be a fee for photocopies at ten cents per page.

 

What if I don’t know the date or place of death?
To find the date of death, search the Social Security Death Index or the California Death Records. We need an exact date to search for you. We search up to two weeks after that date.
 

If you don’t know the place of death, we’ll search microforms in all four libraries. Send your request to the library closest to the last known address.
