The Missouri State Archives has announced in the quarterly of the Friends of the Missouri State Archives (Spring 2008) that scanning of death certificates 1910-1957 has been completed a year ahead of schedule, thanks to the dedication of staff and volunteers and financial support from the Friends. Over 600 volunteers logged nearly 33,000 hours towards completing this project. All these certificates are now available for free viewing online.
The database since its creation has been searched 11.4 million times. The Archives filled 59,000 requests for photocopies before images of the certificates became available online (total doesn’t include an additional 4,700 requests filled by volunteers from the Friends organization).
