Anoka County Death Index

Anoka County History Center has extensive obituary files from 1869 to the present.  This is a start to a master index of all the Obituary files.  If you would like copies of the obituaries please contact us at  or come to the History Center and we will help you to find them.

The obituaries are in 3 different formats depending on the years that they were collected.

1869-1974 are indexed in BINDERS. The master index lists the dates of the binder and the page number within that range. They are usually together by decade.  Some binders have a copy of the obituary and some are only references to newspapers that are available on microfilm at the history center.

1975 - present  are on index cards in alphabetical order in a CARD FILE or copied into a 3 ring binder by year.

Oversized obituaries are filed in MANUSCRIPT FILE by folder (A, B, C, D) and page number
