CamWood Obituaries

CamWood Obituary Project
CamWood Genealogical Workshop
Camano Island - Stanwood Area


This on-going collection of obituaries was started a number of years ago by the CamWood Genealogical Workshop with additions from the Stanwood Area Historical Society’s files.  It is presented here as an expanded index; in addition to surname, given name and death date, each data line includes the birth name, place of birth and date of birth if given in the obit.

The primary source for the collection has been the Stanwood/Camano News published weekly in Stanwood, and serving not only Camano Island and Stanwood, but also the extreme south-western part of Skagit County.  The majority of obituaries in the collection dates from the early 1960s to the 2016.  Earlier obituaries have been obtained from other area libraries, archives, etc. The data base contains over 15,000 individual records. 

The Stanwood Area Historical Society has uploaded to the SAHS web site a list of Stanwood area newspapers and where they are held – Historical Newspaper Holdings | Stanwood Area Historical Society.

The CamWood Genealogical Workshop has on file all of the original newspaper clippings of the indexed obituaries.  If you should find something that interests you, they’ll be happy to make a copy of the obit and mail it to you free of charge; Visit for the most recent contact information.  Donations to the Stanwood Area Historical Society would be appreciated.  SAHS’ address is PO Box 69, Stanwood, WA 98292. Be sure to let them know that you used the Sno-Isle Genealogical web site!

About the CamWood Genealogical Workshop        

Though about 80% of “the CamWoodies” live on Camano Island in Island County, they meet in Stanwood which is in Snohomish County, thus their association with the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society.

The Workshop has been functioning since 1990 when a few folks decided to get together and talk about their common interest in genealogy.  Through the years, membership has grown but has always remained at a level comfortable enough that the group has never abandoned its informal approach to meetings – there isn’t even a president!  Workshop members meet regularly at 1 o’clock on the first Monday of each month in the Stanwood Area Historical Society Museum.  Guests are always welcome!
