Death Certificates - Oregon and Other States
Over the years the GFO has received through donations many death certificates collected by members, for either their personal research or large projects. The certificates are mostly from Oregon, with a few from California, the District of Columbia, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, New York, Ohio, Texas, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming. There is a total of 13,157 certificates.
For each certificate, the person’s name and year of death was indexed. Children under 18 have the given names of the parents listed when noted. A woman who was married, divorced, or widowed has the father’s surname included at the end of the “Given Name” column when noted. The age was given in three instances; 1) there were initials for a given name; 2) there was only a single given name; 3) persons of Chinese or Japanese nationality (the last name listed on the name line was used as the surname).
