Obituary Index

This Obituary Index includes information about obituaries from the Mankato Free Press and its predecessor newspapers from: 1869-1879; 1888-1954; 1970-1986. 

This index is not complete.  There are some gaps in the indexing and some time periods (1940-1970) were not fully indexed.  If you do not find a name of a Mankato area resident that you expect to find it is still possible an obituary was published in the newspaper.
