The "Aroostook Republican and News" for years 1990, 1989 and 1988. This is an image of page 32 from the book for 1989. All three books follow the same pattern.
These books contain information found in all the obituaries that were published in the "Aroostook Republican and News" for those specific years. I will explain the columns line by line across. The first line headings only appear at the top of each page, below the headings the information appears. First column lists surname highlighted in Red so it will stand out. Next appears the age - at the time of their death, then the persons name is listed.
Next his or her birth date and place, then their death date and the place they died.
This is important because that is where you look for a death certificate not in the town where they are buried. Next line is headings for the line below, father's name, mother's maiden name, spouse and 2nd spouse if there is one and marriage date if that is listed in the article. The next line's heading is children, deceased children, siblings and deceased siblings, all these persons are listed first names only, because the "Hippa Law" concerning privacy could apply here. Original obituaries can be acquired through the Caribou Maine Library, they have them in loose leaf notebooks, by year, through their reference department or you can ask to see the books at the front desk. You may also view them on microfilm.
