Re: Dobbs County, NC
In Response To: Re: Dobbs County, NC ()

Kathy,
That explains it. Ancestry.com's Death database for prior to 1968 is screwed up as far as the Counties go. I don't know what they were using as a guide when they had those pages transcribed, but for the most parts, all of those pre-1968 deaths are listing the wrong counties in their Indexes when you do a search. I suggest that you click onto the actual image and look at what it says yourself. Make sure that you refer to the Key at the bottom of the description of the database when you do look at the actual page, because that is where the code for each county is located. Also, unfortunately each county seems to have used a different system for their indexes, so when looking at the page, you need to pay close attention to the numbers beside the names to correctly identify which is the age, county code, date of death, certificate number and whatever else that may be included
