==== Part 5 - Lucas County Death Certificates of 1908-1970 =======================================================================

How to Find Lucas County Death Certificates using Death Certificate Numbers:

Ohio History Connection website can be used to obtain a death certificate number and death date for 1913-1970 (with some missing years)
At this website, search by name and by date range and put the text "Lucas" in the county field. The years covered for stillborns is 1913-1935, and 1942-1953. The years covered for adults is 1913-1944, and 1954-1970. The result will be the name, date of death and the death certificate number.
From there, an uncertified scanned copy can be ordered at current price. [ As of 2022, it was $0.25/each .] [Note: Images can be copied from 1954-1970 for free by diving to the Columbus Officee of OHC.]
But, there are free certificates available from 1908 to 1953. See below 3 procedures.

===========================================================================

1. Note year-of-death for the deceased person
2. Use the Ohio History Connection search website (for the years 1913-1944, and 1954-1970) to find the death certificate number. [for years 1909-1913, & 1945-1953 see procedure 2; and for post-1970 years, see Procedure 3.]
3. From the dropdown menu field for the field "county", select "Lucas". [i.e. restricts search to just Lucas County deaths]
4. Input the year-or-death as a range (i.e. min/max)
5. Input the surname and forename. [This can be a partial starting text. For example, "Mil" finds any surname that starts with "Mil".]
6. From the list of names, find the name. Then, record the death certificate number. [Note: Sometimes they don't record the Ohio State number, but the Lucas County number. So, for those cases, use procedure 2.]
7. Window to the FamilySearch website Ohio Deaths, 1908-1953
[note: the certificates only go up to 1953 online, so to get certificates 1954-present, see procedure 3 below.].
8. Tag the link for the noted year-of-death in step 1
9. On this page, tag the appropriate link range of the desired certificate number recorded in step 6
10. On this page, the certificate numbers are in incremental order, so use iteration to locate the noted certificate number. [That is, keep taking the halfway page number, until the cert number stamped in the upper right of the certification is close, then page one at a time to find it. I usually start with typing in page 1000, then I roughly figure ~1.1 pages per certificate, to either add or subtract pages & then type in the new page. It usually can be iterated to in 6-7 attempts.]
11. Once located, the certificate can be copied as an uncertified death certificate. The URL can be copied from the web-browser header as a citation.
1. If the death year was 1954-1990, find the info for the deceased person in procedure 1 or procedure 2 above.
2. Write down the name, year-of-death and any certification numbers.
3. If the year-of-death is >1990, then just write down the name and year-of-death.
4. For a purchased electronic copy of a death certificate 1954-1970, the OHC website will print out a certificate copy and Email it to you for a charge of $7/each (as of 2021).
5. For a free electronic copy of a death certificate 1954-1970, the OHC iLibrary n Columbus will allow you to make copies to your laptop at no charge. You will need to make an appointment to visit here. But, this requires a 5hr round-trip dive and the library has limited hours, so only so many certificates can be copied.
6. For a free electronic copy of a death certificate 1954-present, visit the Lucas County Health Dept. in Toledo, use the ground floor entrance on the left side facing the building, after a wait in line, the health dept employee (downtown Toledo) will print out an "office-use-only' stamped copy and hold it up to the glass so you can read it for free or take a quick photo of it. Give them the cert#, if you have it, or just the information about name and date of death. [This "viewing" is required of them due to Ohio's Sunshine Laws.]
7. For a purchased paper copy of a death certificate 1954-present, follow step 6 above, except the Health Dept. will print out a certificate copy for you for a charge of $25/each (as of 2021).

===== Part 6 - [For those people either at a Library or that have a paid subscription to Ancestry.com]
Ohio, U.S., Death Records, 1908-1932, 1938-2018 - Tag this link

Then, from the Ancestry search screen fill in as much info as known and search. [As a suggestion, fill in the death location as "Lusacounty, Ohio" and check "exact" - this will limit the results to just Lucas County deaths. Also, if the month of burial is known, but not the month of dte, then assume at first that the death was 4 days before the burial date.] Typically, the date-of death, the Ohio reg.# is listed and the Lucas County reg# are referenced on the results. Then, use part 4 to get the death certificate using one of those reg. numbers and/or the exact date of death listed. [You may need to pull more than one death certificate to locate the correct one.]
