My effort to obtain a 1979 death record >from the NYC Office of Vital Records has
met with repeated rejections:
- Original request was returned six weeks later with a notice indicating that I had
failed to enclose a copy of photo i.d. (Unlikely, but I resent.)
- Second request was returned another six weeks later because my license wasn't
current. (It was current at the time that I copied and mailed it!)
- Third request was returned another six weeks later, again with a claim that I
failed to enclose a copy of photo i.d. This time there's no question: the copy of
a current, signed photo i.d. (a NY State Driver License) that I had sent was
returned along with my application and check!
Has anyone else had similar difficulties recently?
