No death certificate in New Jersey #general

Ilya Zeldes

For almost 40 years, Louis Shulman lived and owned a business at Ferry Street
in Newark, NJ.

On April 4, 1940, in the 1940 US Census, he was listed as Head of Household at
this address.

Then, on or about May 25, 1940, he was buried in the Grove Street Cemetery,
Newark, NJ.

I have all these event documented.

Recently, I've paid $26.00 and asked New Jersey State Office of Vital Statistics
and Registry to provide me with a copy of the Louis Shulman's death certificate.
All I got was a brief statement: "This certifies that the original records and
all appropriate indexes in the NJ State Offices of Vital Statistics and Registry,
have been searched and there is NO RECORD on file for the death of Louis Shulman".

May someone please suggest or explain it to me, how a long time resident of
Newark, NJ, died and interned in Newark cemetery, have no record of death at the
NJ State Office of Vital Statistics? Where could I find the death certificate for
this person?

Please respond privately.
