1971 Missouri Death Certificates Complete – Secretary of State Missouri February 1, 2022

I saw this in an e-mail from the Secretary of State’s Office in Missouri – The 1971 death certificates are online and ready to be indexed!: https://s1.sos.mo.gov/records/archives/evolunteers/. If you haven’t volunteered before, they have several people look at each record. Here is what the e-mail included.

Thanks to all of you, the indexing of the 1971 Missouri Death Certificates is complete! With over 300 active transcribers, this year we were able to finish this project in record time. Once a few things are completed behind the scenes, we will add these records to our Missouri Death Certificate database.

With the conclusion of death certificate indexing, we are shifting our focus back onto the 1860 Federal Slave Schedules for Missouri. Upon completion, this information will be added to our Census Records and Tax Lists database. Part 3 of this project is 73% complete, and with Part 4 remaining we believe we can finish indexing with a final push over the next few weeks. If you’re interested in helping with this project, sign up to transcribe at https://fromthepage.com, then navigate to this link to view the Missouri Slave Schedule Project: https://fromthepage.com/missouristatearchives/missouri-slave-schedules.

Still interested in transcribing death certificates? Once we complete the Slave Schedules project, we plan to re-index the 1955 Missouri Death Certificates. We will keep you posted on our progress and send out an email once indexing goes live.

Thank you for volunteering!
