Death Index of Virginia, 1853-1896

The Library of Virginia's Death Records Indexing Project is an index of microfilmed versions of local registers as part of a long-term, state-wide project to provide better access to local death records.  Each index entry provides the name of the deceased, the date of death, information about slaves and slave owners if present, and the year and page number of the register where the death is recorded.

The online database is fully keyword searchable and currently contains over 46,000 entries.
