We’ll explore over 30 different places where we might find documentation of death. We are not talking obituaries, cemetery & probate records, death certificates, or the usual records. We are discussing discovering evidence of your ancestors’ death via ledgers (several kinds), burial societies, poor records, funeral homes, and much more. You will be surprised at some places where death might be documented.
