Re: New York Public Library advice #general

They have death indexes for the entire city, year by year except for
one year in the 1960's. This can be very useful for locating dates of
death and therefore possibly death certificates. After about 1930
these include records for stillbirths, although they are segregated in
a separate section of the publication. The older volumes are on
microfilm, but print editions after about 1960. It ends some time in
the 1980's or 90's.

It's a great resource for locating deaths that are not covered by the
Social Security death index and occurred in New York City. I've never
seen this information anywhere else. It's a shame no one has digitized
this resource.
