Carroll County, Georgia Obituary Index

The Index is a listing of the names of the deceased found in newspapers published in Carroll County. At present only those sources housed in the Neva Lomason Library have been used.

This Free Index will be available from the home page link, Obituary Index. It will provide the name of the deceased, date of death, residence and spouse’s name as well as the location in the Library. It will be searchable by the last name of the deceased.

The demonstration module has images that are free to the public. However, when the site goes live, the images of specific obituaries will cost $5.00 per image payable through PayPal.

More than 5,000 obituaries from 1945-1953 and 1994 – 1997 have been indexed and additional years will be added as completed. Check on the progress frequently.
