Born Here, Died in the Lone Star State  

One of the many record collections in Ancestry Library Edition (Ancestry LE) is titled Texas, Death Certificates 1903-1982. This record collection may interest St. Louis residents because it is possible to search for persons who were born in St. Louis but died in Texas.

You may search for a particular person using the following delimiter (or you can search using only this delimiter):

·         BIRTH--LOCATION Saint Louis, Missouri, USA (Exact to this place)

The delimiter only search returns 4,713 results. An example:

·         Name: Claiborne Adams
·         Gender: Male
·         Race: White
·         Age: 45
·         Birth Date: 6 Sep 1875
·         Birth Place: St Louis, Missouri
·         Death Date: 26 Jan 1921
·         Death Place: El Paso, El Paso, Texas, USA
·         Father: Robt Adams
·         Mother: Virginia Claiborn

Information contained in individual records may vary, but will generally be similar to the above-listed record.

You can use Ancestry LE at Central Library and our branches.
