Research and Obituary Assistance

Email us at to request an obituary or newspaper article from the San Angelo Standard-Times.

Obituary/newspaper article look-up service is provided free of charge. Obituaries and articles will be e-mailed as a PDF file.

When requesting an obituary or a newspaper article look-up, please include the following information to expedite the research:

For obituaries:

  • Name of the deceased;
  • Exact date of death (day, month, and year) and place of death;
  • Date and place of birth, if possible.

For articles:

  • Title of the article;
  • Exact date of publication (day, month, and year).

As the microfilm collection is not indexed or digitized, we are unable to search by name or a keyword. Obituary/death notice/newspaper article search cannot be performed without the exact date of death (day, month, and year). If the exact day is not available, the librarians will attempt to search within the month, as time and staff availability permit.

Although staff cannot undertake actual genealogical/family history research on behalf of patrons, we will gladly assist you in learning to use the library resources.
