Ira Leviton said: "Certificates of stillbirths were started in the
1930s (I believe the year was 1938, but it may have been a little earlier)."
My cousin found the burial certificate for my aunt who was stillborn in 1916 in
Manhattan. She was listed as "baby Slatas."
Though I was unable to find a copy of the record just now, I believe it was >from
the cemetery. She was buried at Mt. Richmond Cemetery by a landsmannschaft.
