More Death Certificates Added to

I noticed that SeekingMichigan had twittered today that they had recently added more 1897 - 1920 death certificates to their database, for a total of around 600,000. I immediately went on to the site and within an hour had found and downloaded certificates for four more direct ancestors and three more collateral relatives. I searched for many others on my To Find list and am hoping they'll be added to the next uploaded batch.

Running a search on my RootsMagic4 database shows that I have 151 family members who died in Michigan between the aforementioned years. This includes 24 direct ancestors, 10 of which I've so far found death certificates between my searches today and in the past few weeks. I'm looking forward to finding the other 14 in the future.

Back to searching...
