SummaryOf all family history sources, death records are probably the least used by researchers. They are, however, frequently the most revealing of records, giving a far greater insight into our ancestors' lives and personalities than those records created during their lifetime. Heritage leads readers through the various types of death records, showing how they can be found, read and interpreted, and how in many cases they can be used as a starting point for developing your family history research into other equally rewarding areas.
