Help with Delaware County Times Obituaries
Posted by: Mark Clark (ID *****4140) Date: August 07, 2009 at 19:25:31

I'm looking for someone to help look up several obituaries in the Delaware County Times newspaper archives. I believe all that's required is a local resident with a library card at the Delaware County Library System (

I've done some homework: several earlier postings in this forum have pointed to the Widener College library. I inquired of the library, and was told the public, for now, can access their microfilm archives (1971-1985) of this newspaper, but their procedures are changing at the end of August (which I guess implies general public no longer welcome). In any case, I will not be able to get there before the end of this month.

I was referred to the Delaware County Library System's electronic version of the Delaware County Daily Times (1994 - Current), at
This link requires a login of a library member. So if anyone with a library card would like to try this (apparently from home), I am looking for obituaries for
1) Name:        Anne M. Walsh
Last Residence: Darby, Delaware, Pennsylvania
Born:        22 Nov 1912
Died:        17 Jan 2001

2) Name: Loretta H. Corcoran
Born: 31 May 1920
Died: 26 Mar 2002

Also, if there is someone who has access to the Widener College library, before the end of August if you are general public, I have a couple of other names in the 1975-1985 timeframe I would like help with.
And if the date ranges I was given above are correct, is there any location for this newspaper's archives 1986-1993?

Thanks for any help.
