Search Deaths - By Decedent Last Name (Std.)

This page allows you to search on a standardized last name to find deaths relating to Armenians in North America.

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 often variable in spelling. Most are phonetic equivalents to the original Armenian names, but some are quite difficult to reconcile to a known Armenian last name. The drop-down list to the right of the label "Last Name (Std.)" includes all standardized last names in the database for decedents abstracted so far. If you can't find the name you are looking for in that list, click the "Find a Std. Name" button to take you to the Std. Name Lookup page. It will let you map your last name of interest (as recorded in the death certificates) to a standardized last name in the database, returning you to this page and executing the search query with that name. In the result table below, click the "view" icon to the left of the table entry to see the information abstracted from that record.
