New Family Search collection

Family Search has released Iowa, Death Records, 1921-1940, index and images of death records from the State Historical Society of Iowa. As the description says, the images are included. It's a short time frame, however. But I looked up the two people I knew off-hand who died in that time period: Lydia Carr Caylor Burrell Baxter (my great-great-grandmother) and her third husband, John Baxter. I found them both and downloaded the images of their death certificates and also attached them to my family tree. I try to always download images because I have found that sometimes the images may not be available later. And attaching them to the family tree is a good way to source information. It's always good to be able to point to a document to say "this is where I got the information." And the death certificates are interesting. Lydia died of lobar pneumonia with myocarditis as a secondary factor. John died of uremic coma with nephritic pneumonia as a secondary factor.John Baxter death certificate baxter_lydia_deathcert                               I'll be checking for more relatives in this database.
