Sooner or later we all seem to have the same need to find someone whether it’s your long lost relative or your high school friends that you haven’t been in touch with for years. It might even be your relatives that you have never even met before but you need to find them to fill in some information that’s missing from your family tree.
The unfortunate truth about searching for people is that some of the people you search for might be dead. In fact if you are looking for anyone that you haven’t had contact with for some time then you should prepare yourself for the possibility that they could be deceased.
Records kept by government offices can be an invaluable source of information when trying to find dead people or finding anyone for that matter dead or alive. The problem is that there is no one single government establishment that can go to or write to that holds all of the information that you might need. It’s all there somewhere and much of it is freely available but accessing it is not a simple matter.
If you are lucky enough to know in what area someone died in then you can visit or write to the government offices in that state and look up their death records. You might even be lucky enough to find an obituary by going through local newspaper archives.
Imagine what a difficult and time consuming job you’re going to be faced with finding a dead person if you have to contact all government offices in the country. They may not even have died in the country in which case you could be wasting vast amounts of your time. I’m guessing that you have better things to do with your time.
