Be aware that a death may have occured in a location other than where the person lived.  Obituaries, cemeteries, censuses, etc., which record deaths may mention a certain location, but it cannot be assumed that the person died there unless it actually says so.

 

Links get broken fairly often.  Many broken links have been repaired.  View my webpage "Fix Broken Links" which explains how to find missing webpages even if they have been deleted from the internet.  

 

A link preceded by a will take you to a webpage written by me.
