The Contra Costa County Historical Society charges $5.00 per name for obituaries. Unless requested, the obituary will be sent to you via email in "JPG" format.
Please use this new form to search our obituary database. You must enter some or all of a surname to search, and you can optionally add an approximate year of death and search range (1, 2 or 5 years). The data entered for surname is not case sensitive. This means that entering "Richard", "RICHARD" or "richard" will return the same result.
You also have three search options available:
For example, if you enter the search string "SMITH", using the CONTAINS option will return entries for SMITH, SMITHSON and NESMITH. If you use the STARTS WITH option, only SMITH and SMITHSON will be returned. Finally, the EXACT option, only SMITH is returned.
