Missouri State Archives Processing Nearly 53K Death Certificates: 1968 Documents To Be Searchable Online For Free

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jan 9, 2019

The Missouri State Archives is currently processing nearly 53,000 newly available death certificates so the documents are searchable online.

By state statute, death certificates are sealed closed for 50 years before being transferred to the state Archives, said Christina Miller, senior reference archivist. This means the office receives a new set of death certificates every year.

The Archives are processing about 52,800 death certificates from 1968 so they can be digitally imaged and indexed, Miller said. Death certificates from 1910-67 are currently available online.
