Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1903 to 1998.

The collection consists of indexes to deaths from the Oregon State Archives and Record Center. The index is provided by Ancestry.com.

Citation for this Collection

The following citation refers to the original source of the information published in FamilySearch.org Historical Record collections. Sources include the author, custodian, publisher and archive for the original records.

"Oregon, Death Index." Ancestry.com. http://www.ancestry.com. : 2012.

Record Content

The index lists the following information:

  • Age at Death
  • Estimated Birth Year
  • Date of Death
  • Certificate Number or page number
  • Name of Deceased
  • Name of Father
  • Name of Mother
  • Name of Spouse
  • Place of Death
  • Gender

How to Use the Record

Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Name indexes to deaths make it possible to access a specific record quickly. Remember that these indexes may contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.

When searching the index it is helpful to know the following:

  • The name of the person at the time of death
  • The place where the death occurred
  • The approximate death date

Use the locator information found in the index (such as page, entry, or certificate number) to locate your ancestor in the death records. Compare the information in the death record to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if this is the correct person. You may need to compare the information of more than one person to make this determination.
