North Carolina 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.
North Carolina death records are maintained by the state's Vital Records Office. This institution has death records that date back to 1930. Earlier records (dating back to 1909) may also be available but only through the North Carolina State Archives.
North Carolina law [NCGS 130A-93(c)] renders certified copies of records strictly confidential but does allow for researchers to access non-official versions of many public records.
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.
