Thanks for stopping by this weeks SCDL Tree Talk Tuesday. We are excited to share the news that we recently acquired 9 new postcards to add to the collection. They have now been digitized and are available to view on our Flickr Page.

The Genealogy Department has recently acquired 16 old Postcards and have added them to the Postcard collection. It’s always exciting to see “new” items and Postcards are a great find for the historian and family historian alike. Not only do they show buildings and/or places that were/are important to an area, the information written on the back often tell their own story. The new postcards that we have include images of Canton Churches, Aultman Hospital, Timken Mercy Hospital, Meyers Lake, The Work House, Central Fire Station, and the Timken Vocational School. Visit our Genealogy Flickr Page to see them.
Happy Ancestor Hunting!

Welcome to this week’s SCDL Tree Talk Tuesdays. This week we continue our journey about Genealogy Research @ SCDL. Each month we are taking a look at what specific records that are available within our collection to help you with your research. Today’s topic is Death Records
The Genealogy collection has the Death Records/ Certificates on microfilm for the state of Ohio. However, like the birth records there are a few exceptions, which we will talk about further down. The Death Records cover the years 1867-1908. While the Death Certificates cover the years 1909-present. Also like the Birth Records there was an attempt made in 1856 to begin recording deaths. However, there was almost no compliance and very few still exist. With that in mind let’s look at what information can be found on these records and how to locate them.
Locating an Ohio Death Record (1867-1908) Death Certificates were recorded in large journals maintained by the county Probate Court where the individual died. They cover the years 1867-1908 . Below are three different locations that the early Birth Records can be found.
What Information is found on a Death Record (1867-1908)
- The name of the individual
- Date of Death
- Age at Death
- Place of Death
- Place of Birth
- Parents (Although asked, often times left blank)
- Cause of Death
Locating an Ohio Death Certificate (1908-Present): The Ohio Department of Health became responsible for recording deaths after December 19, 1908. It is here that we see the name change to Death Certificates.
What Information is found a Death Certificate (1908-Present)
- Name of Deceased
Death Certificate of Joseph Riegler
- Date, Place, and Time of Death
- Place of Birth
- Parent’s Names, Occupations, Address
- Place of burial
- Cause of Death
- Name of Physician
We hope that this information is helpful in your researching. Next month we will take a look at finding Marriage Records. Until then. Happy Ancestor Hunting!
