Why Would You Need To Find A Death Record?

Death records include documentation containing information regarding a person’s demise which may include death certificates with autopsy results if performed, cemetery logs, as well as death notices.  Death records are often sought as a requirement for filing claims or asserting one’s right over a decedents estate. One can get death certificates from local government agencies which are tasked with archiving. The rules pertaining to the release of these records vary among states. In some jurisdictions, these data can be accessed by anyone after a number of years have passed since the date of death. 

In some states only those related to the decedent or those that are acting in behalf of them are allowed to get these documents. You can order the certificates over the phone, fax, mail, or by visiting these agencies. 

If you don’t want to drive to these agencies and subsequently wait in line you can simply do death record searches online. Governments have put up online death indices online which allow you to search death certificates as far back as circa 1900. Typically, you need to type in the full name of the decedent and the area or state where the death took place. Unfortunately, not all countries have converted their old death records into digital files.

Their websites, if any, simply allow you to bypass long queues by making the requisition process available online. In this set-up, waiting time is just as long conventional transactions. Taking their constituents convenience into consideration, a good number of these jurisdictions have tied up with independent record retrieval companies which charge a fee for their services.

Private establishments or organizations also keep death notices and other death-related records. If you want to look for these documents, you can turn to privately-owned websites which provide paid or free death records search. Paid services have more extensive and up-to-date databases while free death records search usually present you incomplete or watermarked search results which you can’t use for legal purposes. These websites also handle other vital records such as marriage and birth certificates, as well as have background check services. These websites usually require your personal and banking information to facilitate requests, hence, it is of utmost importance that you only transact with safe and reputable websites.
