Subject: [ROOTS-L] Obituary Help

I need some advice. I would like to get a copy of the obituary of Lola B.
Wallace who died 27 Jan 1989 in Pompano Beach, Florida according to the
Social Security Death Index. She was my grandfather's sister.
What is the best procedure for doing this? Shall I write the newspaper there?
What is the name and address? Or the reference librarian at the public
library? What is the name and address? Or the local historical society? Name
and address? I'm not sure just where to begin so looking for advice.
Of course, if there is anyone who actually knew Aunt Lola, I'd love to hear
from them. She was just 4 months short of her 100th birthday when she passed
away. Our family was split in a long ago divorce and we have lost track of
each other. I'm trying to locate our "missing family members."
Thanks in advance for your help.
