If you are trying to complete your family tree or are working for a genealogy website, obtaining someone’s death records is an important task. It becomes quite difficult if the state you are residing in does not allow public viewing or access of death records. Like the state of Arizona. However, Arizona death records can be obtained if the requesting party is an immediate family member, a legal representative of the deceased, a government agency representative gathering information for official reasons, hospital or bank or insurance company representatives, or the funeral director hired by the family. In addition, the requesting party should be more than 18 years old.
