Did you know???

The civil record of your ancestor's death will be filed where he died, not necessarily where he lived or where he is buried. If your ancestor was travelling at the time of his death, had moved in later years to live near a child, or was simply getting groceries in the nearest store across the county or state line, that is where the event will be recorded. If you can't find a death record where they lived, are you certain that is the location where they died as well? ~ Michael John Neill
