== How to Use the Record  ==
+
 
+
Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.
+
 
+
=== Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection  ===
+
 
+
Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:
+
 
+
*[[IGI]]  
+
*[[IGI Batch Number Descriptions]]
+
*[[IGI Batch Numbers for the British Isles and North America]]
+
 
+
If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the [https://www.familysearch.org/#form=catalog&catSearchType=film_number Family History Library Catalog].  
+
 
+
== Record History  ==
+
 
+
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 1998, a few of the entries were published on 7 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "North America Vital Records Index." This is an index of some and deaths and burials throughout Michigan. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.
+
 
+
=== Why This Record Was Created  ===
+
 
+
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored this index to help individuals find information about their ancestors.
+
 
+
=== Record Reliability  ===
+
 
+
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Michigan.  
+
 
+
== Known Issues with This Collection<br> ==
+
 
+
{{HR Known Issues|no message=}}Problem: The combination of Michigan and Missouri deaths in the Missouri collection resulted when records were extracted from cards that contained both Michigan and Missouri deaths.
+
 
+
Answer: Additional death records for Michigan can be found by searching the Missouri Deaths and Burials, 1867-1876, collection, which contains some stray Michigan records that cannot be found in the Michigan death collections.
+
 
+
Tip: When searching for these records, key “Michigan” into the Place field.
