These records are from funeral homes within the San Francisco area from 1895 to 1985. Recorded on the forms are most of the information that would be found on a death certificate about the deceased such as name, surname, death date, place of death, place of burial, and possibly other information like gender, age, parents' names, birth dates and places, etc. The data in the race field is as seen on the record; examples include Black and Caucasian. A death certificate is attached to some of the forms along with a copy of the newspaper obituary which could list the names of children, grandchildren, brothers, and sisters. These names of surviving family members could help you in your continued search for ancestry connections, especially as some of the records are as recent as the 1980s.
