Local History Obituaries

The Obituary Index is a developing database, which is under continuous construction.  Obituaries of Peninsula residents are transcribed from the Daily Breeze and Palos Verdes Peninsula News newspapers.  Currently, coverage extends from 2000 to 2007, but other years are being added as time permits.  Information includes name, age, birth and death dates, obituary date, mortuary or cemetery, and survivors when listed.

Requests for copies of Peninsula News obituaries may be made by mail, phone, or email directed to the Reference Department.  For copies of Daily Breeze obituaries, contact the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library, 3301 Torrance Blvd., Torrance, CA 90503.
