Missouri Deaths & Burials Index, 1873-1976  

Entries in this Ancestry Library Edition record collection were compiled using 36,000 microfilmed copies of church, civil, family, and other records of Missouri deaths and burials. The number of available records varies widely by county, and cannot be considered a complete list for any county.

Details in these records vary but can include:

birth date
marital status
street address
date of death
place of death
date of burial
place of burial
father’s name and birthplace
mother’s name and birthplace
FHL film number

FHL film number refers to the microfilm copy of a print or manuscript source held by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Because this record collection includes details extracted in some cases from family records, researchers will want to confirm facts obtained from this record collection with original sources.

You can use Ancestry Library Edition at Central Library or any of our branch libraries.
