There is probably no newspaper or funeral home for Nunam Iqua (formerly Sheldon Point), which is a village with a population currently of 204. It's accessible only by air or boat -- as are most villages & towns in the Wade Hampton Census Area, & in lots of other parts of Alaska too.

If there are any obits for your relative at all, more likely they're in the Bethel or maybe even the Nome newspapers. That said, I have access to two large libraries in Anchorage (university & city) that have the states papers. So if you can tell me the name of your relative, I'll try to look it up next time I get over to one of those libraries. I have some other library research to catch up on there too, so I can just add this to my research list.
