    Below is a PDF file of names for obituaries (not the obituaries themselves) that are in the different newspapers that served North Judson from 1897 to 2006.  To search the file click on the PDF document, use Ctrl + F - a search box will open up, enter the last name of the person for whom you are searching, and use the arrows to the right of the name to move within the document.

    Once you find the name(s) you're looking for in our obituary listing, how do you get a copy of that information? Thanks to our Friends of the Library group, we have a microfilm reader/printer/scanner which will allow us to send you a copy of the information you want via email.

    As of January 1st, 2013 all genealogical searches will be done once a month by a volunteer from the Friends of the North Judson-Wayne Township Library.  

    To request a genealogical search, open the Genealogy heading in the column to the left and download our Genealogical Research Form, fill in the information, then mail the form and payment for each search to the following address:
