We are in the process of combining our old indexes into one. An intial index is posted on the Home page. It is incomplete. There are 10s of thousands of entries that need to be added. We will continue to expand the newly posted index. If you would like to search the complete index from our previous site, please click here.
The Ventura County Star has archived obituary summaries since 2006. Search here. Complete obituaries are available for purchase at that site. Check also with Foster Library. Most copies of the Star are on microfilm there.
Additionally, VCGS member Anita Schmidt has compiled an extensive index of more recent obituaries. We thank her for sharing. Find them here.
