Funeral Pamphlets

Howard Hamilton was a long time Omaha historian who passed away in November of 2020.  In some of his collections were hundreds of funeral pamphlets and obituaries.  We produced an index of his funeral pamphlets along with others that have been previously donated to the  W. Dale Clark Library and GOGS.  The obits are being incorporated into the obit cards at the Library and the large obits are being put into binders alphabetically.  The funeral card index is listed below.

Colorful “Omaha Newspapers” Chart

Now Available for Download

Society member Karen Tippets, whose microfilm extraction work is responsible for most of the almost 120,000 listings that appear on the Omaha Obits  web site, has put together and made available for download, a colorful “Omaha Newspapers” chart. This horizontal bar chart is in PDF format, and lists all 48 newspapers that have been published in Omaha since 1852 to the present. The chart also shows the years that each of the 48 papers were in publication. (Trivia: Omaha’s first newspaper, the “Western Bugle”, was in business from 1852 to 1853.)
