In 1908, death records were mandated by the state with copies sent to the state capital. Compliance to this law reached 90% by 1928.
After 1928, death records usually give information about the deceased, such as name, age, birth date, state or country of birth, and names of parents and the informant. The date and place of death are given. Sometimes burial information, the cause of death, and the names of physician and morticians are provided.
