How to Use the Record
Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.
Names in this index came from one of the following sources:
- Names collected by members of the LDS Church.
- Names extracted by indexers from various original records.
Any of the names in this collection could also be found in state or other civil records such as the state held Minnesota death records.
Some of the records in this index may also be found in the following indexes:
Minnesota Death Certificate Index 1904-2001. This database indexes the death cards from 1904 to 1907 and the death certificates from 1908 to 2001. Do not use the reference numbers listed in the “Minnesota Deaths and Burials, 1835-1990” as certificate numbers. They may not correspond to any other index. They are reference numbers used in processing the names for this index and as such usually do not reflect an actual certificate number.
For additional information on indexes to vital records in Minnesota see the following wiki article:
If you do not find the person you are searching for or you cannot find a certificate number you should search other indexes to state and county vital records collections such as those listed above.
Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection
Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:
If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the Family History Library Catalog.
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 1998, a few of the entries were published on 7 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "North America Vital Records Index." This is an index of some deaths and burials throughout Minnesota. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.
Why This Record Was Created
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored this index to help individuals find information about their ancestors.
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Minnesota.
