Note: The name of the newspaper in which the obituary appeared may not be available. Early newspaper publications were often no more than a death notice which may only contain a few lines of information. The files do not contain all the obituaries of people buried in McHenry County. Periodically as time permits, more obituaries will be added.
To obtain a Xerox copy of an obituary please: Send the name and date of the obituaries you want along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to MCHS, P.O. Box 434, Union, IL 60180. Please include your e-mail address and/or phone number in case there is a question regarding your order. Each obituary costs $5.00 so please send a check for the total amount made out to "McHenry County Historical Society." ($5.00 X number of obituaries). Must be paid in U.S. dollars. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 815-923-2267.
