Belvidere Newspaper Obituary Index
Our Boone County and Belvidere, Illinois obituary index is searchable by surname. Please click on a letter to open the appropriate index.
*We are in the process of creating a new obituary index which will include all of the obituaries in our card files, dating from the 1850s through 2017. The old indexes are marked in red; the new indexes in green.*
This index includes obituaries printed in the Belvidere Standard, the Belvidere Daily Republican, or the Republican-Northwestern newspapers of Belvidere, IL. However, assume the obituary was printed in the Belvidere Daily Republican, unless otherwise noted. Please note that some dates refer to the date of death, while other dates refer to the date of the newspaper in which an obituary or death notice appeared. If a page number is listed, then the date refers to the date of the paper.
Keep in mind that due to transcription and typing errors, as well as name changes over the years, some names may be spelled differently. Some names have been cross-indexed. If you do not see a name that should be on the list, search for alternate spellings of the name.
If you notice any incorrect information in the record, please contact the Local History staff so that it can be fixed.
