Information gained from the Georgia Death Index varies with the year, with more information given in the later years. At the very least, the name, the exact date of death, the county of death, and the death certificate number will be given. Sometimes, the age in years at the time of death and the primary county of residence are given. To obtain a copy of the actual death certificate, you can order it directly from Vital Records at the Georgia Department of Human Resources by sending a money order (personal checks not accepted) for $10 to:
Vital Records Unit
