GENDIS - Genealogical Data


Welcome to GENDIS on the Web

To initiate the GENDIS program, please click here.

MDCH has provided Internet access to information from archived death records through the Genealogical Death Indexing System (GENDIS).  This system allows the user to search for records using key pieces of information such as the decedent's name, father's last name, and year of death.

The data in this system were obtained from microfilmed death ledgers for Michigan, which have been transcribed by genealogists from Michigan's local genealogical societies. Funding for this continuing project is provided by the Abrams Foundation to the Michigan Genealogical Council.

The current system contains information on 205,000 Michigan death records from 1867-1885. Additional records for 1884 and 1885 have been newly added to the system during the week of March 18, 2002.  GENDIS is updated regularly and reflects the most current efforts of the genealogists and data entry staff.

Please note that the system is down for maintanence nightly from 11:30 PM - 6:00 AM Eastern Time.
