I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.


Most likely died before SS was computerized; so record in the SSDI file.

The Detroit Library [main branch on Woodward] has a Detroit death index on micro-fiche. This index is for ppl who died "within" the city limits of Detroit. The years are 1918 - 1974??. If you call the library ask for The Burton Collection Room.

You can email your request for a look-up in the Detroit City Death Index at the Burton at the following.

They usually get back to you in a few days but they will be closed for the holidays so I would give them a little more time.

The Burton also have indexes to Wayne County Deaths, excluding the City of Detroit, online from 1934-1953. They are located under "Resources".

The Mormon church has finished indexing the Michigan County Death Records 1921-1951 or 1952. They are still going through arbitration but I am hoping they will be available next year sometime. Their website is www.familysearch.org
