I need to order the death certificate of a cousin who died in California in 2004.
According to the website of the California Dept. of Public Health, their average
processing time for a death record is 12 weeks. A faster alternative -- if I could
determine place of death -- would be to order the record >from the appropriate
county. Unfortunately, online California death indexes end in 1997 or 2000,
depending on the website, so they're no help. Are statewide death indexes covering
recent years available to the public at any repository in California? If so, where?
