About the Tacoma-Pierce County Obituary Index

 

The Tacoma-Pierce County Obituary Index contains thousands of records of obituaries and death notices published in local Tacoma newspapers. Obituaries cited in the index are from the Tacoma News Tribune/Morning News Tribune/The News Tribune, unless some other newspaper source is specified:

 

TDL = Tacoma Daily Ledger

 

TDN = Tacoma Daily News

 

TNL = Tacoma News Ledger

 

T Times = Tacoma Times

 

The index is updated on a regular basis, and is complete from 1980 to the present. There are also thousands of entries from earlier years, but those years are by no means complete.

 

 

Obtaining Copies of Obituaries

 

The Tacoma & Pierce County Obituary Index does not provide full-text access to obituaries and death notices. The newspapers used for this index are available on microfilm in the Northwest Room. Tacoma Public Library does not provide an obituary look-up service.

 

If you are not able to visit the Library to use the microfilm in person, there are other options for obtaining copies of Tacoma area obituaries:
