The state of Nevada files death certificates at the Nevada Office of Vital Records. They’ve been officially recorded since 1911, and prior to that date, the records can usually be found at the county level where the death occurred. Nevada’s privacy laws are tightly regulated and only if you qualify as a family member, guardian or legal professional can you access Nevada death records. If you qualify to receive the death record, you must first fill out an application, include copies of photo identification and a fee of $20 to the following address:
Office of Vital Records
4150 Technology Way, Ste. 104
Carson City, NV 89706
Phone: (775) 684-4242
The copies of your photo (government issued) identification will identify you, but you should also be able to state clearly why you want or need the death record. There are many reasons why you might need a copy of a Nevada death record. Immigration issues can sometimes be solved by the data contained on the record and property or inheritance issues are also popular causes for wanting the certificate. Death records can reveal much information about the deceased, such as his or her parents’ names, siblings, children, past addresses and grandparents. It can be a treasure trove for those who are researching their family trees.
The Internet can also help you search through vital records in a certain state or country. Online search services have sprung up since the advent of the Internet and the data that’s now available for searches. You’ll pay more than you would for a state-based search, but it’s worth it when you consider that you’ll receive a prompt reply – usually within minutes of submitting the information. Also, you won’t have to prove you’re related to the deceased or bother with photo copies of identification. The online sites have the power to reference and cross reference other states, so if you’re not sure about the full name on the death certificate, the search engines and databases that the private search sites use may be able to find it. If no record is found, you’re charged nothing. Legal professionals use these sites to find missing records for clients and cases and genealogists use them to track family tree information from one state or country to another. Whatever the reason you need a death record, or any vital record, you owe it to yourself to check out the ways an online Internet search site can make the task easier. Your data will be sent to your private email address and you can read it at your leisure.
