Over 1.8 million individuals have been located on these databases that contain both a birth year and location. Records that did not have at both a year and location were omitted from the compilation. Records with a birth year after 1880 were also omitted.
The records that were extracted include the Social Security Death Records Index, the Mortality Schedules, The lineage-linked databases of 100, 101 and 102,plus the Salt Lake City Cemetery records. The Census index databases were not used as there was not birth information within the indexed record.
In the case of the Mortality Schedules, the birth year was estimated based upon the age in the year of death.
- Individual’s first and last name.
- State or county of birth.
