This Obituary Index includes information about obituaries from the Mankato Free Press and its predecessor newspapers from: 1869-1879; 1888-1954; 1970-1994; 2009-present. This index is not complete. There are some gaps in the indexing and some time periods (1940-1970) were not fully indexed. If you do not find a name of a Mankato area resident that you expect to find it is still possible an obituary was published in the newspaper.
