[Nationwide] ONLINE DEATH RECORDS
I was wonering, is there a way to go on line and find out what states have death records that you can look through on line. I am having the darndest time running after possible surnames of the grand children of my ancestors surnames. The problem is there are 1st names that are very common such as Willie P and Henry Jones. Both of their middle names had a 'P' in the middle. I found a death record for the uncle of them Elbert Pinckney who was supposedly retired and Willie P was the informer although Elbert's wife was still living. Elbert was in Fulton Ga. and Willie P worked for the railroad so he could have lived anywhere the railroad sent them. Henry P is totally off the charts. The 1930 census did not list them as being married so I am assuming they did so after this year. I also assume there were children but don't have a clue what the gender or their names could be.
The other children of my other surnames are related to the women in my family. When they married or moved there is nothing to show that. Everybody was born in Johnston SC and yes I have corresponded with the people there at the Edgefield library so until I am able to go and look through the stacks, I was hoping that I could use this expensive computer to scan on line records of states.
You know it would be no good putting the names here because whoever filled out the records for them spelled their names differently, either by adding a letter, dropping one or just spelling it their way. I would have to be lucky enough to see a name on a death record that are in my notes. Also I have ordered death records, stating the names I am looking for 'black' people and the person looking in many instances sends what they can find which ends up wrong and you know you don't get refunds.
