  • death certificates

  • church records of deaths and burials

  • Social Security Death indexes

  • obituaries

  • cemetery records

  • family bibles

  • mortality schedules from federal censuses

  • probate records

  • newspaper clippings with death information

  • and any significant collection that appears to have been created around the time of a death event.
