The Social Security Death Index is an accessible record of deaths in United States since about 1962. Record access requires the searcher to have knowledge of the decedent's Social Security number, a fact that can sometimes hamper use of the index. Other notable sites to search for death records are Deathindex.com, which allows a search of death records according to state and Ancestry.com, a popular site for tracing genealogy records. The latter requires an annual subscription to access the site, although free trials are often available.
