 Obituary Index


​Since January 2000, the Sarasota County History Center has maintained an on-line index of obituaries published daily in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. The index is generally updated within three weeks of the publication date.

 Search Obituary Index

Obituaries prior to January 2000 may be indexed in the center's obituary card files. The obituary card files begin in the early 1900s and include obituaries from the Sarasota Times prior to 1928; the Sarasota Herald 1925 - 1938; the Sarasota Herald- Tribune 1938 to the present; and a limited number of obituaries from The NEWS, the Sarasota Journal and the Englewood Sun are also included.

Please complete the Inquiry Form or contact History Specialist, at 941-861-5000 to:
  •         Request a copy of a published obituary.
  •         Request an obituary from a time period that is not held in the on-line index.

The center makes every effort to accurately reflect the information provided in published obituaries. However, the center cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information in the index and cannot be held liable for errors.
