Missouri Death Certificates online 1910-1957

The Missouri Death Certificate Database containing over 2.1 million death certificates was placed online one year before its scheduled completion, according to Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s office.

Researchers have immediate, free access to online images of Missouri death certificates over 50 years old, including those of famous Missourians like author Laura Ingalls Wilder, musician and composer John William “Blind” Boone, outlaw Frank James and political boss Tom Pendergast. Family historians, biographers, and other researchers can use these death certificates to discover key information about an ancestor or important historical figure, including occupation, burial site, birthplace, and the names of an individual’s parents and spouse.

Over 600 students and volunteers from across the United States and other countries spent 32,810 hours preparing certificates for scanning and entering data into the index.
