Tips for finding deaths

Success with finding death records in online databases depends on a few key points:

  • Your ancestor's name may misspelled. Try the following search tactics:
  • Try different spelling variations of the first and last name of your ancestor.
  • Try a given name search (leave out the last names)
  • Expand the date range of the search.
  • Try searching with the state name only instead of by county.
  • If your ancestor's name is common, try adding more information to narrow the search.

Collection coverage tables show the places and time periods of original records published. Check the coverage table for the collections you searched which did not include your ancestor. Gaps in the online collection may require searches in other records or original birth records at an archive.
