Death Certificates

In Georgia, statewide issuing of death certificates began in 1919. While some death records exist for earlier decades (principally materials collected by the State Board of Health from 1914 to 1919), most Athens-Clarke County death records date from the post-1919 era. Death records from 1919 to 1930 are indexed and available online at the Georgia Archives in Morrow, Georgia. Building from this dataset, The Athens Death Project has transcribed and datafied 3,405 death certificates for Athens Clarke County from the years 1919 to 1927.
