FW: [iajgs] Ancestry.com and SSDI
- I recently posted that Rootsweb ceased providing free access to the Social
Security Death Index (SSDI) due to the sensitivity of the information--which
has been discussed in other posts. In the notice about Rootsweb, it also
said to go to Ancestry.com for access-- Ancestry.com is a subscription site.
The Ancestry.com site for the social security death index, contains a recent
notice addition advising the reader if they do not see the Social Security
number on the record index, it is because Ancestry.com does not provide the
number for anyone who has passed away within the past ten years.
