Online Searchable Death Indexes & Records

Those of you who have been to any of my classes called "Internet Explorations" know I am a big fan of Joe Beine. Joe has several sites that he keeps updated that are great aids to genealogists. One of them is titled "Online Searchable Death Indexes & Records."

The home page of the site is merely a listing of hot links to each of the fifty states as well as to selected big cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Click on any link and you will be taken to another page the lists scads (yes, scads) of links leading to death indexes and records for that state or city. Some of the links are for pay sites, of course, but Joe warns you about them before to commit to a mouse click. Many of the sites listed have a little written about them so you can make an "informed click."

The best part about the site is that Joe is conscientious about keeping it updated. In fact, I belong to a service Joe provides where he sends me an email listing the updates to the list when he makes them.
