The MOLO Obituary Index began in 1998 as a project built and
maintained by the MOLO Regional Library
System on behalf of the Massillon
Public Library Massillon, Ohio. A group of dedicated
volunteers at MPL have undertaken the extensive task of indexing just
the obituaries from local papers in their collection to aid in
genealogical research. A number of years have already been covered and are now
available online, but it will take time to complete the project. New
records are being added all the time so stop back often.
Recently MOLO has made this service available to all library systems
in the MOLO region with the goal of creating a one stop index of
obituary records. For more information on how to participate, see
How to Contribute.
In addition to the MOLO Obituary Index, there are a number of additional Ohio
library vital records indexes available free online. See
