Death Certificate Records

Vital statistics are records of important dates. A birth certificate record is a record of person?s birth. A death certificate record is just the opposite. It is a formal record of a person?s death. A person may need death records search for a number of reasons. One reason that a person may need the death record is to prove to an employer that a family member has died. The employer may be unwilling to excuse the absences that the person has to take for bereavement without proof. Another reason that a person may need a death records search is to claim benefits such as Social Security and insurance benefits. A beneficiary has to prove that the policy owner died before he or she can collect the benefits.

  1. I want to know how my paternal grandmother and her two daughters died. Her name was Mary(Chiconni)Richer. The two girls names were Letha and Elaine Richer. My grandmother was born in approx 1896, the girls in early 1920’s or just before. All were born in Conneaut, Ohio. Mary had one other child Vincent B. Richer born July 11 1912, my Father. Mary, Letha and Elaine died in Buffalo, NY by suicide, murder or all murdered. I’m trying to find out exactly how they died/ One family member said the mother killed her daughters and then herself. Another said they all were murdered. Apparently Mary’s father looked for them, after three months found they were dead in Buffalo, NY. He took my Father and went to identify their bodies and bring them home. They are buried in St. Joseph’s Catholic cemetery there.
