Obituary Request

The Fort Smith Public Library charges $5 per name for obituary requests, which includes a 15-minute search and a digital copy of the obituary, if found.  Once payment is made, please allow 3-5 business days for us to research your request.  Payment covers the search time, regardless of whether the search is successful.  Please note that the amount of information provided in an obituary may vary, depending on the publication.

If you do not have the exact date of death, please use the research request form.
All other genealogy research requests should use the research request form.
