Re: No death certificate in New Jersey #general
Dear Ilya,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As the saying goes, there are always two possibilities
(1) If Louis Shulman died in New Jersey, and no NJ death record was found,
it is always possible there is some human error in the recording and
indexing system there
. I once was able to find a US Citizenship Record at the National
Archives NE in Manhattan only because someone in the family went up into
their attic and found the original certificate that listed the court, date,
liber and page. NARA could then locate and retrieve the correct naturalization
file which wasn't listed in its index system.
(2) New Jersey is close to NY and other states, and possibly the Louis
Shulman died outside of NJ while visiting or on business, so the death record
would have then been filed in the state where he might have died.
When I couldn't find a death certificate for someone who lived and worked
in Manhattan in the late 19th century, it finally turned out that he died
while arriving on a ship in NJ, and his death was at the NJ Archives.
I wish you much success with your genealogical quest.
