New Social Security Death Index Search
10/1/2003
Family Tree Legends launches a new, free SSDI search.
In June, Pearl Street Software, the maker of Family Tree Legends, launched a new free Social Security Death Index (SSDI) search engine at <www.familytreelegends.com/ssdi>. The SSDI, generated by the US Social Security Administration (SSA), holds valuable genealogical information — including name, birth and death dates; Social Security number; and last-known residence — for all Americans who possessed Social Security numbers and whose deaths were reported to the SSA after 1936. Like other online SSDI search engines, Family Tree Legends' version lets you look for relatives by name, social security number and last residence. It also boasts two unique — and especially useful — features: an age-at-death search and a year-range search, which means you don't have to know the exact year someone died.
