Death, Burial, Cemetery & Obituaries

Death certificates represent one of the key primary sources for family information, typically being issued within days of a death and having many details about a persons' life. Frequently, they contain age, birthplace, parents' names and birthplaces and the cause of death.

An important fact, which can often be overlooked, is the name of the funeral home listed on the document, a place that often has records themselves that can supplement the death records. The name of the informant who provided the information included on the death certificate can also provide a clue to locating new relatives.
