Wareham Courier Obituary Index
The following index covers obituaries in the Wareham Courier
issues from 1905-1918 and 1931-1998. Intervening issues were destroyed
in 1938, by a hurricane and flood which inundated the Courier office in
downtown Wareham. The index data was recorded by Betty Ames between 1997
and 2000 and compiled by Betty Ames and Frances Florindo in April 2000.
The indexing project was sponsored by the Wareham Free Library,
and is provided with the permission of Mary Jane Pillsbury, Library
