I notice that NY death certificates through 1965 are available through
the LDS. Perhaps soon they will have them through 1968. It would seem
worthwhile to check the files for yourself rather than rely on someone
who doesn't have a personal interest in it.

While the Index to New York City deaths is available at the Mormon FHL,
the certificates themselves are not-with a few small exceptions. Once
you have the information >from the index (year is enough if you don't
have a common name) you have to write to the NY City Archives. New York
State vital records are available in the county or town where they
occurred, in filmed indexes at the LDS church, and in Albany. Note: NY
City records are not in Albany.
