Michael John Neill's weekly genealogy how-to column.
The original death certificate for "Michigan George" can be viewed at the website Seeking Michigan. The specific link to the image of the 1904 death record is:http://seekingmichigan.cdmhost.com/seeking_michigan/discover_item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/p129401coll7&CISOPTR=550677&search=CISOOP1%3Dall%26CISOBOX1%3Dgeorge%26CISOFIELD1%3DCISOSEARCHALL%26CISOOP2%3Dall%26CISOBOX2%3D1904%26CISOFIELD2%3DCISOSEARCHALL%26CISOOP3%3Dall%26CISOBOX3%3Dbutler%26CISOFIELD3%3DCISOSEARCHALL%26CISOOP4%3Dnone%26CISOBOX4%3D%26CISOFIELD4%3DCISOSEARCHALL%26CISOROOT%3Dall%26x%3D43%26y%3D17%26CISOSTART%3D2but if this link does not work, I found the record using Advanced search on the terms "George" "Butler" and "1904"--Liz H.
