County: Maricopa
Phone Number: (928) 684-2081
Note: I do know that at least one of the funeral home books is missing. The previous owners lent it out and that person passed away in 2002 while the book was still in his possession, as of 2005, the book has not been returned to the funeral home. (I know this because, of course, it’s a book that I need.) I do know the name of the person who last had the book if the new owners are interested in trying to retrieve it – just contact me)

County: Maricopa
Phone Number: (928) 684-2665
Note: The library archives the Wickenburg Sun Newspaper. Go straight to the librarian for help because the last I knew, this library did not have a microfilm reader, they have the actual newspapers and to keep them from being damaged, the librarian will help you find what you need and copy it for you. This library also has a book that names all those who have obituaries in the Wickenburg Sun from 1934 thru March 1988 (with the exception of most of the 1964 obits) and the dates that the obits were published – a huge timesaver.
