Dear Howie,
Los Angeles County is Huge, I mean Huge. Los Angeles City is entirely
within L.A. County, plus Hollywood, the entire San Fernando Valley, Santa
Monica, and more.

Having said that, the two-digit numbers you mentioned indicate the county
of death. I have a chart copied >from the microfilms of earlier Calif.
death indexes. "70" is Los Angeles County. "19" is not listed, but I
suspect it's Los Angeles also. According to the list, 17 is Lake County,
18 is Lassen County, then 70 as Los Angeles County, then 20 is Madera
County. Note they're alphabetical.

As a side note, when I sent to LA County for a Death Certificate and the
person had died elsewhere, they sent me a note that said so, and refunded
my money. They even told me which county was the correct one.

Good luck in your search!
