  • Comment: This website scrapes data from the Social Security Death Index and formats it into prose. I have come across the database before, as click bait during Google searches, since it contains the names of every dead person in the US after 1970, and hints that there is a photo of the person if you click on the record. However, if we want to use it as a substitute for the SSDI, I am ok with that. There are other copies of the SSDI online, but this one gives a landing page for each person. The other copies just provide a search results with no landing page. Familysearch also has the SSDI but you need to be logged in as a registered user.--RAN (talk) 19:13, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
