Death record provides a birthday

Here at the starting point, we’re going to try to establish some basic information about Henry Hecksher.

The United States Social Security Death Index tells us a few things:

  • Hecksher lived in Mercer County, New Jersey, at the time of his death, in zip code 08452.
  • He was born on September 21, 1910.

I accessed the index through FamilySearch, a geneology service of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

We’ve got the beginning and end of a timeline. Let’s start building it.
