For Your Viewing Pleasure — Death Certificates Update


In my September 8 post titled, “For Your Viewing Pleasure” (, I listed four states that had death certificate records available online. Add the state of Georgia to that list.

The Ohio Historical Society's Web site now offers a link to online ordering of Ohio Death Certificates spanning the years 1909 to 1953. (See
Only those deaths occurring from 1913 through 1944 are indexed and available online, but you may request a death certificate for 1909 to 1912 and 1945 to 1953 as long as you provide all of the following:

1. First Name
2. Last Name
3. Year of Death

AND at least one of the following pieces of information:

1. Month and Day of Death
2. County
3. Certificate #

The cost of online ordering for each death certificate is $7 plus 6.75% sales tax for Ohio residents.

Until Next Time — Happy Ancestral Digging!
