About Michigan, U.S., Death Index, 1971-1996

With over 2 million records, the Michigan Death Index covers the years from 1971 to 1996, making this database of particular interest to those with relatives from Michigan. Each entry includes the following information: the full name of the decedent, gender, birth and death dates, the state, county and town of residence at time of death, and a link to order a copy of the original record. It is important to obtain a copy of the original record because original records generally will provide more information than will an index.
