Missouri Death Certificates, 1910–1955

At a time when vital records are being locked away from public view, Missouri Death Certificates, 1910–1955 comes as a pleasant surprise. Thanks to the efforts of 600 volunteers and students, over two million death certificates are now searchable by name, county, or month and year. Better still, the certificates are being digitized and linked to search results. Images are now available for the years 1910-1920, with more on the way. If a record is not yet digitized, a photocopy may be ordered for the whopping sum of $1.
