Death Certificates for Genealogy: Reading Between the Lines

Genealogy TV

I’m going to teach you how to read between the lines in death certificates, how to find family history clues within them and items of interest to genealogists. 

Death certificates are often the first record a family historian finds when researching a new ancestor. I’ll also show you some tips for a research plan created from the information found in a death certificate. 

This video will show you how to read them to get the most out of them and what to look for to avoid mistakes in your family tree.

The handout for this episode has information about where to find death certificates and more about the details to look for and how accurate the information is within a death certificate.
