As already noted by Sally Bruckheimer, it's more or less impossible for
a death to have occurred in New York City without a death certificate. It
has been long required for burial, cremation, and even moving a body to
another locality.
This may sound obvious to some people, but it isn't to me, so I'm asking.
Does that also apply in the case of a stillborn infant? I'm having
problems finding a record for a child that supposedly was stillborn on
January 1, 1915 in Manhattan. I've checked indices for 1914 and 1915 with
no success.
