Mississippi Death Records

Death is never an easy topic and quite often it is a sensitive one. When it comes to genealogical researchers, death records are one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Death certificates can greatly help in the making of a family tree as it provides names, dates, locations and possible information on additional relatives. There are different laws that will govern your search for death records. Mississippi death records are maintained by the Vital Records Office and date back to 1912. Mississippi Code 41-57-2 governs who is and isn't allowed to request copies of death records. Family members are allowed to order a record of any age. Others may be able to access death records 50 years after the event. Many investigators realize that the information superhighway of the internet contains many record-finding-websites dedicated to this form of information expedition. Not only do you save time and money as you are not required to travel to various institutes all over the state, the search method itself is greatly expedited.
