Attention:

Due to concerns about county death records which are less than 50 years old having social security numbers available for viewing online, we have blocked searching for all death records less than 50 years old. The 1964 deaths will become available on January 1, 2016.

Pattern Match Search Guide

  • Use * to search for zero or more characters before or after the search term.  Examples: Jef* returns Jeff, Jeffrey, Jefferson, etc.  Ste*en returns Steven, Stephen, etc. *alton returns Dalton, Walton, etc.  Using a * before and after a search term will find that term anywhere in the field.
  • Use _ to replace a single character with a wildcard character.  Examples: J_n returns Jan, Jen, Jon, etc.  _an returns Dan, Ian, Jan etc.  Je_ returns Jeb, Jed, Jen, etc. Multiple _ may be used.
  • Last names may include both maiden and married names.  To search this field for one of the names, use this format: *name*.
