  • Our old archives include news and sports articles published online from Jan. 1999 (when was launched) and April 2007.
  • The very old archives including images (PDFs) of the Press-Republican and its predecessors — the Plattsburgh Sentinel and the Plattsburgh Republican.
  • Current obituaries include full obituaries and death notices from the past 12 months.

Old archives: Search online articles from 1999 through April, 2007 PDF Print E-mail
1999 to April 2007Our Old Archives section includes articles published online from the launch of on January 1, 1999 until we switched to our current site on April 16, 2007. It does not include obituaries from that period, however. They can be found in our Old Obituaries Archive. It should be understood, as well, that not every locally written article was published online, so this archive can't be considered a complete archive of the Press-Republican newspaper.

Obituaries: Current and past 12 months PDF Print E-mail

obit text graphicToday's obituaries are located in our main Obituaries section. You can also search for all obituaries published in the Press-Republican during the past 12 months in this section.

To search for an obituary from the past 12 months, skip to about half-way down the page in the Search Options area. There you can search for the deceased person by last name or by keyword (such as location).

If you know the date the obituary was published, you can use the calendar on the right side of the Search Options area to search by date. If you know the date the deceased passed away but not the publication date for the obituary, use a date a few days later as a starting point. It is sometimes a few days to a week or more before an obituary is received by the Press-Republican from a funeral home. To change the calendar to an earlier month, use your mouse to click on the arrows at the upper left of the calendar.

The best way to search for the name of a deceased in this section is to use the Filter search box. Type the last name of the deceased in the filter text box and press the Enter key. This will find all instances of that name or any name that includes your search term.
