|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
If you have obituaries of people who
lived in Kitsap County, please contact the Obituary Project Chairperson so your information can be incorporated
into our existing obituary file. Please include death date and newspaper name and date, if known.
While we are no longer collecting obituaries, we are working with
funeral home records. If you have questions about our work or you are interested in joining our committee, please contact the Obituary
Project Chairperson by clicking here.
