Index to San Mateo County Obituaries

This index currently includes almost 78,000 entries for obituaries of San Mateo County residents. Included are nearly 75,000 scanned obituaries that are available from SMCGS for a small fee. They include the Redwood City/ Peninsula Times Tribune Obituary Morgue (1969-1992); The SMCHA obituary Collection of obituaries culled from the historical societies biographical files; The Daily Post; The Daily Journal; The San Mateo County Times (assorted years); San Mateo County Residents in the SF Examiner (1906-1959); Veteran's Memorials; and a collection of obituaries of former San Mateo County residents from other papers. The index also includes obituaries from the San Mateo Times assorted years in the 1920s and 1930s that are not part of the scanned collection but are available on and other fee based sites. Additionally, the scanned collection include the Pacifica Times Tribune and the San Mateo Times from 1999, which were indexed by Chris Havanar on The Obituary Daily Times and therefore are not in this index. This index was originally created by the SMCGS Computer Club. See RESEARCH SERVICES on this website for information on obtaining copies of scanned obituaries.
