I am endeavoring to locate death dates for several of my line that died in Yavapai County
In most states, prior to statehood and before death records were centralized at the state vital records office, most counties kept a death index. Even after deaths were recorded at the state level, the counties still keep an index of the deaths for that county.
Could someone on this message board advise me if Yavapai County has such an index? The individuals died in Yavapai County between 1902-1970. I have searched the SSDI without success which tells me they were in agriculture or ranching - more likely ranching as that is what the families did.
Also, I have an individual that is believed to have been working on the family ranch and died in Yavapai County between 6-1902 and the 1910 census. He should appear on a death index if one exists.
Thanks for any information.
