Tom Kemp just announced today that the Social Security Death Index database will now be free to access at his website, GenealogyBank.
"So what?" you may be thinking. "I can access the SSDI in several places online for free already."
BUT, the SSDI database at GenealogyBank is the most comprehensive one on the Internet.
It has expanded & enhanced the data – adding the day of the week when the person’s birth or death occurred and the GPS coordinates that many genealogists like to have for their records.
Also, no other site updates the SSDI weekly. Most update every month or longer.
