Can’t find your ancestor’s death record? It’s not necessarily a dead end.

death recordsDeath records are considered one of the vital records in researching our ancestors. Usually death records can be found from such sources as Cemetery records, Obituaries and Vital Stats (Death Registrations or Certificates). ). If we don’t find our ancestor in one of those death records, we’re often at a dead end and wonder where we can search next.

If we consider what happens when someone dies or what takes place around the death of a family member we can be assured that there is often a paper trail of different types of records that can help answer our questions. With a little creativity researchers can find alternate ways to access the information they are looking for.
