Death Certificates & Burial Permits
Issued in the City of St. Augustine,
1878-79
The Source, A Guidebook of American Genealogy edited by Arleen Eakle and Johni Cerny, lists the
following other problems with death records ..... all of which you will encounter here:
1.           Many record collections are incomplete.
2.           Legibility is a problem with the handwritten records (If you think it is difficult to read physician's
handwriting today, you should try to read their writing over 100 years ago. The two years worth of records
today represent statements handwritten by the physician or mayor.)
3.           The records may contain a variety of surname spellings.
4.           The records for this article are copied, which may produce additional errors.


Point 4 is especially a point worth taking. This article is a secondary source. It leads you to the real thing.
YOUR records should include a copy of the original record. Not that I would possibly make any errors, but
if you don't find a relative on these lists that you would expect to find you should examine the original
records, maybe it just got overlooked.

This rule should be extremely important to anyone who attempts to create a genealogy from secondary
sources or lists from the internet. Without the original copy and good primary information within that copy
you may be up the wrong family tree.

How do you list a death record in your genealogy? In
Cite Your Sources by Richard S. Lackey, 1980, p68
(buy this book when you see it) four items are needed:   1. What kind of document is it?  2. Date of the
