Death Records of Fairfield County Ohio
Volume I 1867 - 1890
This is the first of two books of death records for Fairfield County, Ohio
covering the period from 1867 to 1908.
Death records were not required in Ohio until around 1867 and were kept at the county level by the
Probate Court where they were hand written in the death books.
Death records were kept in this manner from 1867 until 1908, when death certificates became a State requirement.
The original death records can be found in the Fairfield County Probate Court. The information used in this book
was extracted from microfilm copies of these original records. Every attempt was made to accurately reflect the
information contained in the death records and to transcribe the records exactly as entered.
Misspellings etcetera were transcribed as they occurred in the original.
The books are sorted by the SURNAMES of the deceased and sometimes contain the names of the father and the mother.
This book has 304 pages and over 6000 names of decedents.
