Death Notices & Obituaries
In the summer of 2000 we started maintaining the LaPorte County Cemeteries and Research site. At that time all obituaries donated were placed with their appropriate cemetery. Then in February of 2006 we volunteered to maintain the Genweb for this county. Therefore many of the obituaries that were previously on line are also located where we originally placed them with the proper cemetery that the deceased was interred at.
