[OH] Update on Death Certificate Searches
This is a follow-up to my posting on 9 March 2008 about the Ohio Death Certificates on the site mentioned below. These are Ohio DC's from 1908-1953....viewable & printable.
1. Registration no longer required.
I recently found the DC for a sister of my great grandmother that I never knew existed. Using the "More" option I searched on the father's last name (Bridge(s) and mother's maiden name (Brooks)..nothing else. Three of my hits were Elizabeth Wise(1845-1912), Emma Adams (1853-1931) & Kathryn Woodson (1862-1930). Wise, Adams & Woodson being their married names.
As a note...these DC's proved the point of inconsistent information and the need for multiple records in verifying your family information. The father is listed as Anderson Bridger, Anderson Bridges & Cupid Bridges. Emma's husband is listed as Izar S. Adams rather than his name Isaac L. Adams.
Also the range in birth years from 1845 to 1862 (17 years)suggests a somewhat "stable" relationship between Anderson & Minerva even during their period of enslavement.
