Death records contain more than just the date of death. Important information about relatives can also be uncovered searching these vital records.

When searching vital records, you will likely look at birth record and marriage records. You may think that death records contain little information about a person except for date of death. Death records will provide you with important information about a person. Here’s some of the information you can find in death records:

  • The birthplace of the person. You may not have known that your grandfather was born overseas until you looked at his death record. Sometimes a county coroner will not check other county vital records to verify the deceased’s birth place and will assume that the person was born in the town they died. Most of the time a family member or relative will be able to give someone the correct date of birth to be included on death records.
  • The name of the deceased person’s parents.
  • Date of birth. Some people lie about their age, however death records must be as accurate as possible and even if a person lied to everyone, the death record will reveal the truth.
  • Cause of death.
  • Where they died. If you are searching through very old county vital records, knowing where someone died is important. Death records are normally filed where a person died.

Searching through county vital records is not always easy. If you don’t know where someone died, you may have to call or visit many agencies and counties to find death records. This can be time consuming and expensive. Online record search companies compile this information in one place. You can search for death records from California to Florida. These searches can be relatively inexpensive. You don’t have to leave your home to find the death records you need and how to obtain a copy.

Local Information for the State of Kansas:

The Office of Vital Statistics receives and preserves vital records for events (births, deaths, marriages, and divorces) which occur in Kansas. Birth, death, marriage, and divorce records (vital records) in Kansas are not public records. Certified copies of vital records are released to the person named on the record, immediate family, a legal representative, or anyone who can prove a direct interest.

Currently, the Office of Vital Statistics does allow requests for genealogical research. Pre-1940 records may be requested by an individual related as at least a cousin. Post 1940 records must be requested by an immediate family member.
