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.

The Louisiana Secretary of State has an online search for various vital records. The database includes deaths that occurred in Louisiana between 1911–1960. The database also contains older death records for some parishes, such as deaths that occurred in Jefferson parish before 1911, and deaths that occurred in Orleans parish as early as 1804.

A second database includes births that occurred in Orleans Parish between 1819–1907. The database also contains birth records for births that occurred in Orleans parish as early as 1790.

A third database has Orleans Parish marriage records from 1870–1960. Searching for marriages that took place from 1831–1869 may produce results with dates and names of spouses taken from the official marriage index, but individual marriage records for this period do not exist in the archives.
