I entered the surname :"seaver" into the database and saw 12 matches:
I clicked on the first match and saw the record summary, with an image thumbnail:
While this is not my ancestor, he is a distant relative, and I had him in my RootsMagic family tree database without a death date or location.
I added this record, and the others listed, also. Now I need to look for surnames Carringer, Auble, and Vaux also to add to my database.
A source citation, you ask? Why not:
"Reports of Deaths of American Citizens Abroad, 1835-1974," online database, Ancestry.com (http://www.ancestry.com: accessed 20 October 2015), Horace Nelson Seaver entry; citing Reports of the Deaths of American Citizens, compiled 01/1835-12/1974. General Records of the Department of State, 1763-2002, Record Group 59. National Archives, Washington, D.C.
Do you have ancestors or relatives in this time period (1835-1974) and cannot find a death record for them? They may have died abroad, and might be in this database.
