Obituaries

The Fitchburg Historical Society has a large obituary collection of people associated with Fitchburg, Wisconsin. Click on the blue Links to Obituary Names below to see what obituaries we have in our collection. Recently we have obtained permission from the Wisconsin State Journal and the Unified Newspaper Group to display images of these obituaries on our website. As we slowly transition from links to online obituaries (mostly 2009 to present) to obituary images spanning over 100 years there will be a combination of formats that are explained on the webpages linked below. In addition to the links to obituary images the new format has links to cemetery information. There is also a link on this webpage to our FHS Obituary Database containing the birth and death dates and places, all names published in the obituaries and cemetery. As with our other databases, when the link is clicked a pdf document in tabular format will appear and viewers of this database will be able to do searches using a web browser. At this time the database has only a small fraction of the names. This project was funded in part by a grant-in-aid from Wisconsin Historical Foundation, Inc., administered by Wisconsin Council for Local History, Inc.
