FamilySearch Labs recently published an Alabama Death Certificates Index for the years 1908 through 1974. This searchable database includes extracted spouse and parents’ names (if available) as well as death date and location. Other information can include burial location, birthplace, marital status, birth date, parents’ birthplaces and other information typically found on a death certificate.
This is exciting news for those researching the “border counties” of Mississippi such as Itawamba where many family connections cross the state line. To research this index, simply visit FamilySearch Labs (select the Canada, U.S.A. and Mexico Region, then select Alabama Statewide Deaths: 1908-1974).
