JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Missouri Posts death certificates on-line form 1910-1957 #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>

Missouri has posted their death certificates on-line >from 1910-1957
(50 years old and over). There is a searchable index that links to a
digitized image of the original death certificate. The index can be
searched by first name and last name, county, and by year and month.

As this is ongoing project not all records are posted as yet. For those
searching death certificates less than 50 years of age the site has a link
to the Missouri Bureau of Vital Records.

Pre- 1910 death and birth records have an interesting past with
requirements starting in 1883 and repeal in 1893 and starting again
in 1910. Those records are on microfilm at the state archives.
For more information as to the birth and death records database on
the pre 1910 birth and death records, go to:

Thank you to GeneaBlogie for first citing the death certificate
index on-line project.
