Local Newspapers for the Oakland Cemetery ...

Our GPS coordinates for the Oakland Cemetery have not been verified, but they should be close.<1> The overhead view might be misaligned, although it should be in the general area.

Below are the newspapers that have been published in the vicinity of the Oakland Cemetery.

Our newspaper information for the Oakland Cemetery is based on data taken from the Chronicling America website. For more information, please see our description of the Chronicling America website.

Hint: When we started searching newspapers, we only looked for obituaries. Eventually we realized that our search was too narrow and there was much that we were missing. Now we include things like around-the-town and gossip columns, birth and death announcements. We have some family members who owned businesses and now we search for articles and advertistments for those businesses. Some family members could have been better behaved and a search of police blotters contained a some surprises.
