The Miami-Dade Public Library Genealogy Department has local newspaper
obituary and birth indexes that may be helpful to researchers.

McFadden Newspaper Obituary Index
(multi-volume set - Dade County, 1896 to present)
McFadden Newspaper Birth Index
(multi-volume set - Dade County, 1892 to 1970s)

The indexes are not available online. You may "Ask a Librarian" to search an
index at or call the Genealogy Department at 305-375-5580.

Request a copy by mailing a $5 check or money order to MDPLS. Keep in mind
that the index covers obituaries published by the family and "one-liners"
from funeral home lists. Also, a limited number of birth announcements were
published in newspapers.

Two Dade County newspapers, The Miami Herald (5/19/1982-current) and El
Nuevo Herald (1/1/1983-current) may be searched in Newsbank online and at
public libraries.
