Utah Death Certificates

The State of Utah in conjunction with FamilySearch Indexing have completed a project of extracting digital images of Death Certificates for deaths in Utah between 1905 and 1954. These images have now been linked to the States death index and are available online at the Utah State Arcives web site at:

After entering the name of the person you are looking for and selecting the correct match on a couple of follow up screens, you will see a summary of the death and an image icon.

By clicking on the image Icon the Death certificate will be opened and can be saved by clicking on your right mouse button and select "Save picture as"

Many images need to be straightened and cropped. I use Picasa which is a free photo editing program from Google. It is easy and quick. Have fun finding your ancestors certificates.
