Did You Know?
*Missouri State Archives has death certificates for 1910-1957 online.
    • Hint: In you are having trouble getting a hit, try using just the surname and year, year and county, (leave name field blank) or just first name and county, or any combination of these.
    • You might also try Starts or Ends' With. (i.e. "Harm" will show Harman & Harmon; "nell" .. Pinnell, Pennell, Penell etc.)
    • They were transcribed as they were viewed from microfilm, 'the index is not 100% accurate, choose the spelling that nearest resembles your ancestor. Reporting errors to the Archives will assist other researchers.
    • Not all deaths were documented.
    • Tombstones do not always have the right years.
