This group has always been so knowledgeable and so I turn once again to help
solve a mystery, which is: Is it possible for someone to have died in NY City
between 1910-1930 and not have left a record? I know it is possible for birth
records to not exist, as I have personally experienced this.
Details: I ordered a death record for my g-g grandfather Nathan MEYER who
according to Manhattan, NY census records of 1900 and 1910 was born about
1839-40. The certificate itself was for an entirely different individual with
a different spouse and homeland. My Nathan was married to Sarah(Sima)MILBAUER
and was born in Mielec, Galicia.
I tried a variety of name variations using his approximate death date, but I
have not found success. I value and appreciate any additional suggestions any
of you may have.
