Hi all

I am not even sure if my request is possible. I am trying to confirm that this Thomas HAMMOND is my ancestor, can anyone access the death records or let me know how I can.

Lucas County, Toledo Ohio Death Index, 1894 - 1897 Record

Given Name: THOMAS
Surname: HAMMOND
Death Date: 03 NOV 1897
Age: 88
Page #: 73

Thanks Julie

American records are sadly not as organised as the lieks of the GRO.

You might try the American equivalent of GENUKI, it's called USGENWEB. The URL is http://www.usgenweb.org/

You should find links through to states and then counties within states. The amount of information on different sites varies greatly, but you might be lucky and find a burial record or transcript of an obituary.


PS I must add a footnote in praise of Tim Stowell who maintains the pages for Madison County, New York (in addition to others) and has provided masses of useful information.

Hi Julie,
I have found Random Acts of Kindness very helpful in my Ohio research.

Best Wishes

Hi Julie,

If you can give a bit more background info we may be able to trace your Thomas Hammond.

I do not live in Ohio, so I cannot hop in the car and drive to the various places where these records are available; but perhaps we can help you narrow things down a bit better if we knew the names of Thomas' parents, Thomas' approximate year of birth, and approximately when Thomas and/or his ancestors came to the USA. Of course, any additional information would be helpful.

If you haven't already stumbled across rootsweb, check out the discussions on the Hammond boards there (they are searchable)
