Re: Seeking Ehrlich cousin #general

Dear Cousins,

Scott Ehrlich asked for help in finding descendants of a relative
who died in Boynton Beach, Florida, in 2003.

When the year of death is known, death certificates >from Florida
Department of Health are only $5.  Their process is fairly easy and
quick, and generally the only restriction is that the cause of death
is available only to certain individuals.  Important for Scott,
there is a box for the "informant's" name, and that's likely to be a
close relative or somebody who knows the information he wants.  
The instruction page is at
http://www.floridahealth.gov/%5C/certificates-and-registries/certificates/death/index.html,
and contains a link to the application form.

If that doesn't work, the name of the cemetery will be mentioned
on the certificate, and that's another potential source of information
about relatives who placed the grave marker or paid for grave care.

Finally, a newspaper in the Boynton Beach area may have published
a death announcement listing survivors.  Even small libraries can
determine which newspapers are available for the area and get
microfilms through interlibrary loan.

Regards,

Ira
