Lynn also submitted a Helpful Research Hint in the Mailing list about
the GENDIS Michigan Death Index. GENDIS is missing many Barry Co.
deaths. If you know for a fact that your ancestor died in Barry Co., and
he's not on GENDIS, try the LDS microfilms listed below at your nearest
Family History Center. If you don't want to use the index, and you're just
browsing, you need to know the Barry Co. vital records were often recorded
at the end of the year, when the county clerk sorted and entered them by
township. For example, if your ancestor was in Assyria Twp. in 1870, you
would look at the beginning of the 1870 entries. Likewise, if she were
in Yankee Springs, you'd look at the end of the 1870 entries. It's worth
using these films for births, especially. State law forbids issuing birth
certificates for anyone born fewer than 100 years ago, except to the person
named or her parents, to prevent identity theft. But you can photocopy
the filmed pages from the county clerk's ledgers for more recent births.
