Obituary index now available on blog

A new feature to the All About Relatives Blog is an index to obituaries and death notices related to residents and, in some cases, former residents of West Hempstead, Nassau County, New York.

To access the index, just click on the West Hempstead Obituary link above this blog posting.

The index is created using local newspapers such as Newsday, the Nassau Daily Review Star, the Hempstead Sentinel, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and the New York Times. The index lists the date of death (if available), date of publication and publication name.

Currently the index includes items from the 1920s to early 1950s. New items will be added on a regular basis.

For information on obtaining a copy of an item from the index, contact the West Hempstead Public Library at 516-481-6591 ext. 22 or email
