These records are transcribed as accurately as humanly possible, but errors could have been made in the translation, as the early handwriting is sometimes hard to decipher. Also, as the transcriber is human, typos could have been made. One should consider every variation in the surnames they are interested in when searching for a record and for the possible misinterpretation of the name by the recorder.
* No attempt was made by this transcriber to add or detract from these readings. If a column is blank, such as given name, that is the way it was recorded in the index. Some recordings were transcribed after 1900. In the cases where the “cut-off” of the copy was after 1900, it does not reflect the Register and Page numbers. So if a column is blank, I do not have it. What is transcribed here is all the information I have.
If errors can be proved by legal methods, such as death certificate, the County Clerk can be notified.
I am pleased to be able to offer these death records freely for genealogical research – Mary Ann Kaylor
