Mattoon Death Register

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST
This is transcribed by your host (Kim Torp) from original microfilmed documents. These are the same documents that the IRAD used to put together the Mattoon Death Register Index on their website. However, there are some important exceptions. First, the records which I transcribed are only from 1 to 1530. The remainder are on another roll of microfilm which I have not as yet ordered. Secondly, there are over 500 extra records from 1902-1903 contained here which are
not on the IRAD's index. The extra records appeared to be strictly from Coles County's recordkeeping and were much less detailed than the official death certificates the state required. I have notated these extra records with an (a) after the certificate number to avoid duplicating numbers. If you try and write away for the certificate from the IRAD or Coles County, DO NOT include the (a) after the number. Truthfully, I'm not sure whether the IRAD has access to the extra 500 records or not.


As always with genealogical transcriptions, you are advised to check with the original document yourself. DO NOT assume that I have transcribed this with 100% accuracy. I have noted my questions with a
(?). Some of the original documents had question marks in them and I have tried to note this with a (sic) Original spellings were maintained, even when obviously wrong. Also, be aware that there is more information for "Physician/Informant" on the record which I did not start transcribing until the 1902's. Since the roll was wound backwards, I started transcribing from the latest down to the earliest and in the later years, the doctor or the undertaker was the one who signed the certificate. Trying to save myself some time and finger cramping, I did not think it was necessary to copy the doctor's/undertaker's name. Unfortunately, I realized a little more than 3/4 of the way through transcribing that they occasionally put an "informant" in the space rather than a doctor's name, and the informant was usually a family member. Being on a time schedule, there was no way I could go back through and re-enter the information. Sorry. But that just gives you a reason to obtain the microfilm and check the information for yourself, which you should do anyway.
This microfilm may be bought or rented from Heritage Quest, product # V141-81 - "Illinois County Records" or viewed at the IRAD in Charleston, IL under the name "Mattoon Death Register".


HAPPY HUNTING!
