Death records are among the most enlightening for the researcher. They frequently reveal personal information not found in other sources, which will help you see your ancestor in a much more accurate light. Finding an ancestor’s death is crucial in another way too: an awful lot could have happened to them between when you saw them recorded on their last census return or baptizing their final child and the day they died. Without the death record you only know half their story. Yet these records are surprisingly underused by many researchers. Celia Heritage looks in detail at various types of death records, some familiar and some less so. She explains how to get the most from them and how to use them as springboards to discover further vital sources.
