Death records in the state of
Georgia were to be recorded by every county starting in 1919. Some
counties have earlier death records; Glynn County is one of them. Our
records start in 1891, however, they are very few, especially if your ancestor
did not live within the city limits. This database was compiled from two
sources; one, the state of Georgia death index and two, the mortuary book for
Glynn County located at our local health department.
According to a local funeral home, it was not mandatory until
1950 that every death be recorded, therefore your ancestor may not be in this
index even though you know for a fact that they died in 1923 for example..
As with any transcribed database
there are, of course, mistakes. Spelling being the biggest. I did
not change any spellings from the records unless I knew them to be incorrect.
Some deaths are recorded twice, with either a different certificate number or a
variation in the spelling of the name.
This is a very time consuming
project, and the pages will be updated periodically as I go.
The certificate number listed in
this database is for State reference only, it is totally useless on the county
