Recently been called to membership clerk and cleaning up some records of unknown people/addresses/etc. We came across 3 members that have passed away but do not know their dates. Their old neighbors, friends, etc do not know the actual date other than a few years ago. How does this get recorded?
If the Family history specialists are not able to find them you can go down to the county clerks office and get a informational copy of the death certificate. Unfortunately, this method cost a fee. We had to do this for several records, but the ward is now much more motivated to keep up on deceased members especially when they saw the cost involved.
I have the same problem...but I'm in Poland, and there is just no way of going through any of those steps. Obituaries are not a common thing here, and the new EU privacy laws are extremely restrictive; government offices will not release that information to non-family. How do we record deaths in this case? I don't even have an approximate year in a couple of cases....
