Step One Go to Website of Idaho State Historical Society
Scroll down to newspapers (NOT Genealogy). Click on the area that lists newspapers for
your area of interest. Since you have the date, pay attention to newspapers that cover
the date of death in your area. Copy the information to include in your death
notice/obituary request. Also include the date of death and name in your request.
Include your name and snail mail address in your request.
Step 2 Then e-mail a research request to:
If you have the newspaper citation and death date it will cost about $5.50 to search the
first 30 minutes and to send a one page copy.
They will advise you by e-mail if they found anything. You will then have to send a
payment to receive the actual copies. Regardless of if they find anything you will have
to pay the search fee.
They also have city directories that they can search using the same procedure. Good
