Social Security Death Records Index - Interactive Search by RootsWeb. IMPORTANT NOTE: "generally speaking" you will *not* find anyone listed who died before 1962 listed on the Internet. If you can't find your ancestor in the US Social Security Death Index Online, do what I did; obtain the Official State Death Notices on each ancestor. Their death notice will have their SSN on it. I also included a copy of each individual's Death Notice on the copies of the SSN app I requested. All of my grandparents had names that many other people share (ie: Maria Nigro) so it made it a lot easier to just get the number off the State Death Record.
