Re: 1918 Flu Death certificate -- cause of death #general

I cannot magnify the death certificate enough to see if there are numbers written by the cause of death. If you go to http://www.wolfbane.com/ you will see that there are codes going back more than a hundred years that doctors used to indicate exact cause of death. You must be careful to use the codes that were used for that year of death.

 

At the above website, go down to:

 

International Classification of Diseases [complete]

ICD decoder

 

to find out what the cause was. It is often much easier to read the number code than the doctor’s handwriting.
