Genealogy and Byron Historical Information

Obituary Listing

This Excel file contains obituary information about residents from Byron and the surrounding area. You will find more than just names and dates. We have tried to fill in as many blanks as possible. For those of you researching your family history, this file should not be overlooked! You might find the name of a distant relative you never knew existed. Please keep in mind that this file is always under construction. We will update it periodically as we make changes. While browsing, if you should find a mistake, please send us an email so that we can investigate. Information listed in red means we already know something is wrong with the entry and we are working to fix it. Finally, if you are looking for someone who is not listed please send us an email with as much information as possible about the individual in question and we will do our best to find answers for you. Contact us at library@byron.lib.il.us. Thank you for your patience with this project!
