Where are Death Certificates Located?
The Advancement Services Records team does a daily search of UGA constituents who have recently become deceased. If an obituary or death certificate is found for the constituent, the image will be attached to the vanguard images tab of the constituent’s record in GAIL. Recorded surviving relatives will also be documented and a note attached to the documentation and interactions tab. If any of the surviving relatives are constituents in GAIL, the family members will be linked. If the Records team cannot find an obituary and/or death certificate, a note will be written on the documentation and interactions tab.
