Responses to “Kansas Death Records”
I do not need a death certificate. I would like to know if Kansas death records show the deceased’s parents names. I would like this information for a medical research study I am taking part in and for family information. I am looking for my paternal grandfather Joseph (Jose) Johnson who died in July 1952 in Pittsburg, Kansas.
Margaret, we ran a Kansas death record search for your great aunt and did not find anything in our KS death index. It’s possible it’s older than the death records that have been copied to a digital format. That being said, you can contact the Kansas Department of Health and inquire about her record of death. Also note that it’s often the case where a “cause of death” is not listed on a death certificate, especially if the cause of death was unknown. You can call the KS Department of Health directly @ 785-296-6174

I have been given a death date of 1945 by a family member but I do not know if that is correct. She was born in 1867.I don’t need a certified copy. But would like to know date and cause of death. Her maiden name was Caple her father was Samuel H. Caple. Her children and husband were all deceased before 1930.
