Death Records Are Public Record

People often ask, Are Death Records Available To The Public In The United States? Death records are included with birth records under the category of “vital records.” These records are created by local authorities throughout the United States and may also be created overseas by the military. There are many reasons why you may need a death record. For example, you may be an executor of an estate. You may be a surviving spouse who needs a death record to gain access to your spouse’s real estate assets. Regardless of the reason, there are many ways to gain access to a death record online.

The History Of Death Records

Vital records have been kept by most states since the early 1900s in the United States. However, some states were recording deaths much earlier, such as Massachusetts, have had death records as early as the 1600s. It is now required by federal law for all states to keep death records, but what must be included in a death record can vary. In the 21st century, certain forms of death records have become much more accessible than others. You might also want to note that not all death information has been transcribed from paper forms to digital formats so if you want to find out more about a death that’s not recorded then you may also want to reference newspaper archives or genealogy resources.

Death Record vs. Death Certificate

There are two types of death records: official death certificates and death indexes. The official death certificate is issued at the time of one’s death and includes vital information about the deceased. This may include the full name, age, ethnicity, verifiable personal information, cause of death, mother and father, DOB, DOD, residence, age of death and if the person was in the military or a veteran of the armed forces.

The information included in these records can be more sensitive, so they are sometimes restricted by the state. The restriction expires within 50 to 100 years, depending on the state. To obtain an official death certificate, begin by contacting the state in which the individual resided. The state may refer you to a local agency or may have possession of the certificate.

Death indexes are more readily accessible. They provide basic information about the deceased and do not include sensitive information. While there are often costs associated with obtaining death certificates, death indexes can usually be downloaded for free.

Obtaining a Death Record Online

Depending on the state in which the death certificate was issued, it may be possible to obtain a death certificate online. State agencies sometimes maintain their death records online and there are also various websites such as which aggregate death records online. While these websites are convenient, the death records are not official. If you need an official death certificate then it is best to contact the county in which the death took place and/or the place in which the person who died had lived. If you are unsure of the county of death or residence then websites like can be very helpful in trying to locate a death certificate.

How to Find Someone’s Obituary

In addition to finding a death record, there are many websites that aggregate obituaries, including newspaper archives and genealogy websites. Obituaries should not be treated as official death records because it is possible to submit an obituary that contains information that is not factual. A death certificate is considered a much more official record of an individual’s death.

  15. Massimo Dacasto says:


    At the end of the 1800s 2 brothers of my great-grandfather called Tobia and Cesarino Dacasto and a woman most likely their sister called Pierina emigrated from Italy to the United States, perhaps with a ship sailed from Genoa and docked in New York. My father knew that 2 people with my surname (Dacasto) lived in California. One of them was Tobia: my father remembered his will arrived in Italy from California in the 60s where it was rightly written that after thinking about it for a long time he left nothing to his Italian relatives, but everything to his wife and stepson (at some point he had lost contact with Italy). I am intrigued by the names of that wife and stepson. Can you provide them to me? Does that stepson have descendants who can develop the following? I launched on this site a search related to the death record of Tobia Dacasto finding nothing. Can you provide me with information in any other way?

    Kind regards,
    Massimo Dacasto
