Since Guam is a U.S. territory and under the same jurisdiction laws as most states, death records are recorded in the same manner and you should be able to receive the same type of information as you could from a state. The fee for the search is only $5, payable only by money order. The Freedom of Information Act works the same on Guam as it does in the United States, so personal information about a deceased person can be found within the files of the state or country. Many need this information for legal reasons and other reasons that include genealogical research and a number of others. Some of the information you might see on Guam death records are date of birth and data about the how the deceased died. If you’re searching for genealogy details, a death record can contain a wealth of information about a family tree, such as who the spouse and children are, how many times the deceased was married and divorced and place of birth. Only immediate family members of the deceased are allowed to access the records and you should seek a court order for the record. To enlist the territory of Guam to find a death record for you, send the request, along with the fee to:
