Death Records (1910-1961) - Records of deaths occurring in Missouri from 1910 through 1961 are available at the Missouri State Archives which contain valuable information for family historians and researchers.  The Missouri Death Certificate Database records created after 1910 and over 50 years old, makes that information available online through a searchable digitized image of the original death certificate.

The index can be searched by first name and last name, county, and by year and month.  Once a name is selected, an image of the original certificate can be retrieved.  Missouri State Archives click here
