Osage County Historical Society Museum & Research Center Announces Two Projects

Osage County Historical Society Museum & Research Center is proud to announce the NEAR completion of two major projects.
We own an obituary collection amassed in nearly thirty scrapbooks. The scrapbooks have been re-indexed by the names of the deceased rather than chronological order. The indices now also contain the maiden names, as well as previous married names, of ladies (insofar as we could determine from the obituary. The master index now contains over 30,000 records with more being added weekly.
One year ago we obtained four reels of microfilm which contain the naturalization records of Osage County. We've been working on that master index since January 2007. While not complete, the index now contains nearly 10,000 records.
The first half of the Naturalization Index can be found under the Resources heading at our website,
The second half will be added when the index is complete.
If your people ever spent any time in Osage County, you may wish to examine these records. Check with us for research and copy fees via email at:
