SSDI Now Free on GenealogyBank, Too
Posted by Diane

You have another place to search the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) for free.

The subscription historical newspaper service GenealogyBank has made its version of the SSDI—a database of people whose deaths have been reported to the Social Security Administration (SSA)—free. Most deaths listed in the SSDI happened after 1962, but look anyway—my great-grandfather, who died in 1949, is in there.

The SSDI can tell you when and where your ancestor died, and his Social Security number (SSN). You can use the SSN and death information to request his SS-5, the record of his application for a Social Security card. (Learn how in our associate editor's Family Tree Firsts post.)

Other places with the SSDI free include FamilySearch, FamilyTreeLegends, World Vital Records, NewEnglandAncestors.org and RootsWeb. Each site adds new death information from the SSA on a different schedule; GenealogyBank updates its SSDI weekly.

You can search several sites' SSDI databases simultaneously through Stephen P. Morse's One-Step search.

The SSDI Index on GenealogyBank is NOT free. In order to access the database one must be a member! Membership is 19.95 for one month or 69.95 for one year. That makes it a paid databaise! NOT FREE!!!

The SSDI on GenealogyBank is indeed free. Try it. Click the "GenealogyBank has mande its version ..." link above and run a search. Then click the heading for the SSDI results (there's a red "Free" in front of this heading). Then click a name and you'll see the SSDI details on that person.
