At Herrick District Library, you can find most obituaries from the Holland City News or the Holland Sentinel from the years 1872 through the present. The Herrick District Library has indexes beginning in 1872 for the Holland City News and indexes through 2020 for the Holland Sentinel. We have a large obituary file at the library which contains Holland obituaries starting in the mid 1900s through 2004. There are also files containing genealogical information on the deaths of residents of the city of Holland, Banks Township, Olive Township, and the city of Zeeland from 1905-1955.
In addition to finding local obituaries, the website Find A Grave not only contains cemetery information, but in some cases contains more information on the individual, sometimes including obituaries and photos of gravesites.
If you would like help looking for a specific obituary in the Holland Sentinel or Holland City News, the library can research up to five obituaries for you. If you would like to access this service or have any questions, let us know below.
