How to Find Someone Who is Dead

The web sites below will allow you to locate people that have passed away or that you suspect might have passed away. You can also use these sites to locate where a past friend or family member was buried. Results are best obtained if you have their first and last name as a minimum. If you have additional information such as the city or state of their death this will assist you in locating them easier and faster.

The database was assembled by volunteers from the Sysoon (dead people search engine), serving as transcribers, data entry, and validators, and we thank them for their hard work.

Information about deceased people is sometimes needed for legal or health related reasons as well as for genealogical research. As more records become available, tracing deceased people becomes easier. Researchers should first investigate the vast amount of free data that is available to help find deceased people before paying for such information. Accessing free records may take a little extra time and patience but quite a bit of information is available to help a researcher find a deceased person for free.
