Substitute Records

Additional Records with Death Information

Substitute records can contain information about more than one event, and are used when records for an event are not available. Because the substitute records may not be created at the time of the event, it may contain incorrect information. Search for as many substitute records as possible to corroborate information found in substitute records to help improve accuracy.

Tips for finding deaths

Successfully finding death records in online databases depends on a few key points. Try the following search suggestions:

  • Your ancestor’s name and surname may have had many different spelling variations.
  • If you are not finding what you’re looking for, try using wildcard characters. That is, use an asterisk * to replace one or more characters.
  • Try searching surrounding areas. Your ancestors may have died in another town than where they lived earlier in life.
  • Be flexible with year searches. Give a year range of about 2-3 years on either side of the believed year of the event.
