|Ancestry.com entry for the Social Security Death Index|
James Earl Jones, 241-18-6528
Note the date of birth as 1921
If you find an entry for a person of interest in the Death Index, you can order the original application. Ancestry will generate a letter for you. The fee used to be $7. A few years ago, the fee jumped to $27. This is unfortunate, as the application contains great information, such as birthdate, place, and names of parents.
Note that the information in the Index lists the date of birth for James Earl Jones as 1921; but the original application has 1920 as the year of birth. This is an interesting point and is why you need to order the original application.
