Notes

An index for Michigan, Death Certificates is available online, click here.

Microfilm of original records at the Department of Community Health, Division for Vital Records and Health Statistics, Lansing, Michigan.

Death certificates are arranged alphabetically by county and then chronologically. Cities within each county are found at the end of their respective counties and are also arranged chronologically within each city. Numbering of certificates begins over with each county and also with each city. The counties and cities also have a district number which usually appears next to the certificate number. Normally there are several spaces between the district number and the certificate number, but on some certificates, usually when the certificate number is five or more digits, the district number appears to be part of the certificate number (example-- for Flint City district no. 225 and certificate no. 33401, the number appears as 22533401 on the certificate).

The name of the department that handles the registering of Michigan vital statistics has changed through the years. In 1952, it was known as the Vital Records Section under the Department of Health.

"Images may not be published before the 75-year cutoff has passed." Circulation of microfilm is OK.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
