Re: No Death Certificate - Pennsylvania #general


Jay Cohen
 

The Pennsylvania Department of Health told me that there is no record of my
great-grandmother's death certificate (even though i know her date of death -
1-22-1913).

Any other suggestions?
One possibility (turned out to the case in my family) is that your
great-grandmother actually died in a different state. In my case, my
great-grandmother lived and was buried in Erie PA but actually died in a hospital
in Buffalo NY. When I tried to get her death record form the state of PA, I was
simply told that none existed. This confused me to no end until I heard the
family story of her death in Buffalo.

Hope that helps.
