Williams County Ohio- Death Records

Death records are important to confirm facts about our ancestors and their relationships. Records in Williams county are in three different places. They are the Williams County Health Department that is located in Montpelier, OH, Williams Co. Record Center in Bryan and the archives in Bowling Green.

The Health Department records include those deaths in the county from 1909 to present. The records prior to this date run from 1867-1908. All certified records can be obtained at these two locations. Be sure to have the date narrowed down to the day or at least the year. Please be patient with the these folks as it takes time to retrieve the records.

The archives in Bowling Green has the death records on microfilm and they run from 1867 to 1943. All these records are on microfilm.

I will be discussing the wills in Williams County. Have a great day.
