Obtaining Kent County Obituaries: There are basically two ways to obtain copies of obituaries from the microfilmed newspaper archives at the Grand Rapids Public Library. The first way, using the WMGS obituary service, requires that you have the exact name and date of the obituary, as published in the WMGS obituary indices. The second way is for researchers who don't have the name and date from the obituary index, and involves going through the traditional WMGS research service.

  • WMGS Obituary Order Form

  • For obituary listings found in the WMGS obituary index search engine.
  • WMGS Research Request Form

  • For any obituaries not listed in the index, including those before December 1929, any obituaries you believe or hope may have been missed by the indexers, or any where you are uncertain of the death date or obituary publication date.
