I am not that familiar with researching/requesting obits in the Detroit area. What organization/Genealogical society/library would I contact to get an obit for an individual(John W. Thompson) who passed away Jan. 29, 1941. Place of death was in Eloise and he lived in Ecorse. I am looking for survivors, to confirm that I an researching the right person. I have the certificate of death, and I have contacted the funeral home, but they do not have the records from 1941. The certificate of death only indicates for burial River Rouge - no cemetery name, so I wasn't sure of the cemetery either.
