Death is not something that people like to discuss openly, but no one would be able to deny that death is something that would affect not only the people whom the deceased would leave behind, but also the community upon which the deceased had belonged and, in theory, even the whole world. This is because death is something that would change the status of a person, and such change is binding upon the whole world. Once one understands the effect of death, one would begin to understand the importance of death records like San Diego County Death Records.
As the official records of the government, these death records are the best evidence that one could present in order to prove the happening of the event and, in this case, that which needs to be proven is the death of the decedent. Once a person had died, he no longer could own property which means that any property that he may have left behind would have to be distributed amongst his heirs, though such distribution could not be made without court intervention as there may be others who have a claim against the deceased and those would have to be settled first before one could enjoy the property of the decedent.
As they are public records, death records are supposed to be available to the public at all times, but in the case of death records, this general rule is true only for informational copies which may be requested by any person who would like to request for them. Of course, informational copies also enjoy the presumption of regularity and because of that, the informational copy is usually enough in order to prove the death of the person named in the record. The presumption of regularity is just a presumption, which means that it is not conclusive and it may be challenged by anyone, though it would be the burden of the person or party making the claim to prove their claim.
Copies of death records are available at both the state and the local level and in both levels, it is possible to make the request through mail. A request in person may only be done at the local level and it would be better to use this method as it would be faster given that the request would be completed within the same day that it is started. Of course, one must take into consideration the territorial jurisdiction limitation of local office at this level, and the fact that the request made in person would require travel on the part of the person making the request.
Copies of San Diego County Death Notices are also available online, though because most online sources are not official sources, any and all information obtained through such sources could not be used in official proceedings. Still, there are numerous reasons why people rely upon online sources for their information, chief of which would be the fact that these sources could provide their information faster, more efficiently, and considerably cheaper as most would charge only the most minimum of fees for their use.
