Meyersdale Library Special Collections Project: Obituaries
About the Project
In 2004, the library received a grant from the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies to fund an obituary preservation project. Tens of thousands of obituaries were digitized and put on CD. The discs were then sent to Somerset County USGen Web Archives, where they recruited volunteers to transcribe the obituaries and make them available online. There are currently over 36,000 obituaries online for free use by the public.
