Mocavo's Free Social Security Death Index Advanced Search

If you’re in the genealogy community, chances are you’ve read, researched or at least heard about the ongoing battle over the Social Security Death Index. Our own Michael Leclerc has written a series of blog posts about the matter, and many of you have asked us as a company where we stand.

Today we’re answering that question by releasing a brand new, highly advanced and completely free feature of our site: the Mocavo Free Social Security Death Index Search. With this new search, we’re giving our users the ability to scour over 88 million death records with the most advanced SSDI search the web has to offer.

Those of you familiar with Mocavo Plus will recognize the layout of the search, complete with various tools such as Sounds Like, First Name Alternatives and Wildcard Searching, and multiple data-specific search fields, such as Issuing State, Birth & Death Dates, Age at Death, Last Benefit, and Last Residence.

So go ahead - test it out. Let us know what you think in the comments below or on our Facebook page. As always, we’re looking forward to your thoughts, feedback & questions.
