Discover your ancestors and build your family tree
by searching The Social Security Death Index!
OneGreatFamily still remains focused on providing the BEST
collaborative tree service available. To remain the BEST we are
planning to add many new features to our service, such as The Social
Security Death Index. OneGreatFamily will soon provide you with
access to the most influential, up-to-date Social Security Death
Index available on the Internet!
The Social Security Death Index contains records that are
collected from the U.S. Social Security Administrations Death Master
File. This government provided database contains over 70 million
names of deceased individuals whose death had been reported to the
SSA, was of employment age after 1935, and died before April 2004.
The social security death index contains details about the
individual's name (Last, First), social security number, birth date
(usually complete), death date (usually month/year), last known
residence (zip code, city, county, state), and last benefit payment
location (zip code, city, county, state).
These records you
receive from the SSDI can also lead to the discovery of more vital
information. So watch for the addition of the SSDI on our site! Make
sure you take advantage of this new feature to help discover your
ancestors and build your family tree!
Go to our home page to start
searching for your ancestors!
