|Jeanne Menchenton and Bev Nelson filing Obits
began meeting in 1999 to record obituaries into a card file system and enter the names into a database. Our obituary
files include information dating back to 1891 and were obtained primarily from local and regional newspapers. We officially
stopped collecting obituaries August 31, 2012, due to space limitations and the availability of recent obituaries
in the online editions of local and regional newspapers. We do, however, have a few obituaries for 2013. If you would like
to request a copy of an obituary, please submit
an Obituary Research Request Form
The index of obituaries on file in the Genealogy Center at the
Kitsap Regional Library's Sylvan Way branch can be found by clicking on the following link.

We have also created an index of funeral home records from the Pendleton-Gilchrist
and Lewis Funeral Homes in Kitsap County, Washington. PSGS members copied information from the funeral home ledgers onto index
cards. These records are from 1903 to 1939. If you would like to request a copy of a funeral home record, please submit a
Funeral Home Record Request Form.
