Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre

3 days ago, I did a post on my discovery that, according to the information on genealogybank.com, the SSDI (Social Security Death Index) had changed the date-of-death for alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza, from the previous Dec. 13, 2012 to Dec. 14, 2012. (Click here for my post.)

The date-of-death of Dec. 13, 2012 is significant because that means Lanza had died a day BEFORE the massacre of 20 first-grade school children (and 6 adults) which had ignited a nationwide move to “control” guns and ban “assault weapons.”

On January 20, 2013, I had taken a screenshot of that Dec. 13, 2012 SSDI record precisely as a safeguard against that record being altered or scrubbed. Here it is:

Adam Lanza died 12-13-2012

Well, it appears SSDI had communicated the change of date, from Dec. 13, 2012 to Dec. 14, 2012, only to genealogybank.com.

Sharp-eyed FOTM reader kab made an important discovery:

Another website, Ancestry.com, still has the SSDI date-of-death for Adam Lanza as December 13, 2012!

I just took a screenshot of that Ancestry.com page, as proof and also as a prophylactic against Ancestry.com altering or scrubbing that information in the days to come — as I’m sure it will.

Adam Lanza SSDI ancestry.com

Note that I had taken the screenshot at 7:08AM, on 2/5/2013.

When one sets out to deceive, it’d be helpful to get the story straight.

GenealogyBank.com and Ancestry.com really must do better at coordinating with each other. Tssk, tssk.

A big h/t to kab! 😀

Update (Feb. 18, 2013):

In a comment, a reader asked if Ancestry.com still has Lanza’s date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012.

Nope!

As we had expected, Ancestry.com finally got caught up with genealogybank.com. Ancestry.com now says SSDI’s date-of-death (DoD) for Adam Lanza is Dec. 14, 2012. LOL

Here’s a screenshot I just took of the Ancestry.com page with the new DoD:

    I doubt VERY much that SSDI communicated in ANY way with GenealogyBank … it is MUCH more likely that the staff at GenealogyBank altered the record to agree with the headlines … so that the public would stop sending them messages.

  2. As I said before, you need to bypass the genealogy sites (who are just getting a feed) & go directly to the Social Security Administration (SSA) to get a copy of the ACTUAL record … I think it costs $10.

    • kab,

      I just tried to order Adam Lanza’s death certificate from Vitalcheck. Got this message, “Sorry, this Death Certificate is unavailable,” to every version of my request:

      1. Date of death: Dec. 13, 2012; City of death: Newtown, CT
      2. Date of death: Dec. 14, 2012; City of death: Newtown, CT
      3. Date of death: Dec. 13, 2012; City of death: Sandy Hook, CT
      4. Date of death: Dec. 14, 2012; City of death: Sandy Hook, CT

  3. The screenshots we have are NOT the actual record … we can see that the 2 screenshots look different … that is because they are merely a transcription by each genealogy company.

  4. I was afraid that might happen 😦

    See this article below, which relates how the CT court has sealed ALL documents pertaining to the Newtown incident. It also tells us that CT state police will NOT be releasing any info about the case until the summer of 2013 …

  5. The CT court order WOULD cover the CT death certificate.
    But it MIGHT not cover the already released federal SSDI record …
    so it would still be a good idea if someone could check with the SSA about that.

    The CT court seal might or might not cover the CT SSA office … and I don’t know if you could get the SSDI record at another state’s SSA office?

  6. Thank you Dr. Eowyn and kab for this most interesting post. Looks like a lack of coordination occurred here and people did not “remember” what they had to do in this situation. I say, “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember.” (Mark Twain)

  8. Orly Taitz is asking for an expedited default judgment on her case before Feb 7th because every time she gets anywhere near to finally exposing her evidence the officials in charge resign or retire and the next person taking over conveniently finds that the document seems to have been destroyed before he or she takes office.
    Perhaps the people in the offices that are in charge of the
    records of this boy’s death have either resigned or retired too. The DOJ has people resigning and retiring since the Fast and Furious episodes were brought up, and a lot of military leaders have resigned or retired recently from our Armed Forces. The Obama Cabinet has seen a fair number of changes too………………………..
    We are up a gum tree and that’s most likely where they want us.

  11. This thing just keeps getting curiouser and curiouser.

    Kinda makes you wonder who they are going to find in that bag Osama was supposedly buried at sea in should it ever be found.

    For some strange reason I don’t think it will be Osama.

    • Nope. I just checked. Ancestry.com finally caught up with genealogybannk.com. It now has a new date-of-death for Adam: Dec. 14, 2012.

  13. Just something to keep the thread going. Seems very suspicious that the mother was on vacation one day prior to the shooting. One of Dawn Hochsprung’s daughters lives 30 minutes from the resort she stayed at. Hmm…Did she ever return to the home at all?
