About This Research Service: The library has microfilm copies of death cards from 1900 through 1904.  Death cards were transcribed from information compiled at a later time by the Minnesota Department of Health.  The cards cover the whole state, but they are not complete and are not considered official documents.  

Unlike death certificates, many death cards were filled out very incompletely.  A completed card includes the decedent’s full name, sex, race, marital status, birthplace, and occupation; primary and contributing causes of death (including the duration of each); parents' names and birthplaces (state or country); mother’s maiden name and birthplace; names and addresses of attending physician and undertaker; burial place and permit number; and the name and address of the person reporting the death (usually the township/village clerk or city health officer).  

Cards, especially for the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, frequently contain little more information than the name of the decedent, date of death, sex, marital status, birthplace, cause of death, and person reporting the death.
