Search Deaths - By Decedent Last Name

This page allows you to search on a decedent's last name (exactly as it appears in the original record) to find death entries relating to Armenians in North America. Death records are particulary important because they often provide the names of the parents of the decedent.

This database table currently represents just a few of the communities in North America where Armenian immigrants can be found. The records abstracted are those where the images of the death registers or the certificates themselves are available online. As more of these images become available, and as time permits, I will continue to expand the scope of this coverage. Volunteers are graciously providing assistance in transcribing records from other Armenian settlement communities.

To see what scope of records have been searched (or are currently being searched) for inclusion into this database table, press the button below.

Names on the death certificates were sometimes variable in spelling. Many are phonetic equivalents to the original Armenian names. You should also view the query "By Decedent Last Name (Std.)" to look up a decedent by all spelling variations for a last name.
