    1. Becca,

      We can certainly assist you with an Arizona people search or an Arizona death record search. We’ll need the full name of the deceased, age and state and county of last residence.

      How to Get a Copy of an Arizona Death Certificate

      1. Contact the Arizona Department of Health Services
      2. To obtain official death certificates you need to be a relative or have a court order
      3. You must be over 18 years of age
      4. Fill out the form and pay the applicable fees

  1. Would it be possible to locate someone without having a last name? I attended Sahuaro Elementary School in Phoenix between 1982-1984 for 7th and 8th grade. There was a boy by the name of Sam that attended with us that made a huge impact on my life. I remember people bullying him and when I finally stepped in, we heard – “What, are you his girlfriend?” I stepped in and said “Yes, yes I am,” and kissed him. He smiled from ear to ear and things were never the same in his lonely world again. Long story short – I am now a published author and have been wanting to tell his story and write about what an impact he made on all of our lives. I left for the summer between 8th grade and 9th grade year and he passed away during that time unfortunately. He was in a wheelchair and had M.S. or Muscular Dystrophy or some type of disease such as that. Needless to say, I will not be using his official name in the book, but I cannot for the life or me remember what his last name is. I have also contacted the school to get a copy of our yearbooks from that time. Is there any way to find someone without a last name or date of birth? I was born in 1969, so he would have been born in 1969 or 1970 and would have died when he was between 12 and 14 years old. I would like to pull up the obituary to see exactly when he died and find his parents so that I can send them a copy of the book as well, but I have nothing to go off of except his first name (Sam or Samuel) and the above info. Any suggestions? I appreciate any help you may be able to give. Thank you!

    1. Your story is compelling. I wish we could be of better assistance to you but without a last name it is like looking for a needle in a haystack. In order to use our Arizona public records database to search for people we typically need a first and last name as well as an age and county of residency to filter out the many results. We have over 2 billion records in our database resources so it’s insurmountable to search though without a last name at least.

  2. Our 50 yr H.S. reunion is coming up. We have a list of our fallen classmates but are missing the year of death on some. How do i get that
