In 1919, the Georgia Legislature passed a law requiring civil registration of deaths within the state of Georgia. Deaths are registered in the county where the death occured and a copy of the death certificate is filed with the state Bureau of Vital Statistics. Since 1919, the State has maintained yearly indexes to the registered deaths.
All of these death certificates are available at the Georgia Archives, 5800 Jonesboro Road, Morrow, Georgia. The death certificates are arranged by year and thereafter by alphabetical order of the deceased.
This database contains data gleaned from the microfiche version of the state death indexes for 1919-1923. Only the deaths occurring in Pickens County, Georgia, are contained within.
