What are Death Records?

Death records comprise the official information that documents a person's death, including date, time, and place of death. A physician always signs legal death certificates before a Vital Statistics office releases the information to family members and public authorities.

Before the 17th century, in North America, death records, along with marriage and baptism records were kept by the local churches. In 1639, Massachusetts Bay was the first colony to have secular courts to keep vital records. By the end of the 1800s, European countries had already set in place centralized systems for recording deaths. In the United States, the first standardized death certificate model was developed in 1910. After the creation of a federal National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) during the 20th century, the 21st century brought local, state, and federal government organizations together under the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS). These agencies collect, process, and disseminate the information contained by vital records, including death records.

In most of the United States, a death certificate is considered a public domain document and is considered attainable regardless of the requester's connection to the deceased. Some jurisdictions like New York could restrict disclosing death certificates to anyone who is not a close relative, parent, spouse, child, or sibling of the departed unless they present a New York State Court Order. Nowadays, beyond the death certificates, there’s the data incorporated in death records which can be divided into three categories:

  • Dates: birth date, date of death, date of burial.
  • Names: maiden name, parents, children, other relatives, spouses, witnesses.
  • Places: the residence of the deceased, birthplace, place of death, mortuary location.

When conducting an online lookup for death records via Infotracer, simply type the deceased’s name and state into the search box. The resulting online report could include the date of birth, date of death, place of death, relatives, or surviving family members, and more.
