United States Death Records


  • $0.00

Civil death records contain information provided to local, state or national authorities.  Ecclesiastical death was reported to the county clerk (or later, the Texas Department of State Health Services) during this time period, and they can be rich sources of information on both the deceased and his or her family. Details provided vary depending on when the document was made. Modern death certificates can include the following information, while pre-1905 records give fewer details:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Birth Date
  • Birth Place
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Address
  • Cause of death
  • Occupation
  • Marital status
  • Spouse
  • Father’s name
  • Father’s birthplace
  • Mother’s name
  • Mother’s birthplace
  • Informant’s name and residence
  • Funeral director
  • Burial location
