Hi Genners,

I received a telephone call the other day with a question I could not
answer. I am hoping one of you might be able to.

The ladies ggg-relative was traveling >from USA to Germany and died on the
boat. She has a death date and would like to obtain a copy of the death
certificate. Where would the certificate be?

Her question made me wonder - where are the death certificates for our brave
soldiers that die abroad.
On the chance that the sentence above is related the paragraph just above
it, and that the deceased was in the military, the answer depends upon the
service in which he was serving. If he was in the Army, the query should be
addressed to the Adjutant General; if in the Navy or Marine Corps, to the US
Navy Bureau of Personnel. Both the Army and the Navy have websites that will
help you direct the inquiry more exactly.
