Do you have any near-and-dear (OR maybe not really so near or dear!) relatives from Waltham? Did they pass away sometime between 1912-1960 but you haven’t been able to find out exactly when? Try out our new link “Deaths in Waltham from City Directories: 1912-1960” available on our website. It’s a fully searchable list of deaths cited in the pages of the Waltham City Directories. From our homepage just go to Library Departments/ Local History/ Genealogy Resources, scroll down to “Waltham Materials” and click on “Deaths in Waltham…” to bring up the PDF file. To search, either click on the binoculars or press Control-F and put the name in the search box. You can easily advance from one entry to the next. Once you then have a date to go by you can easily look for an obituary, if wanted, in our library microfilm collection.
