Re: 1918 Flu Death certificate #usa

Family and DNA

My great great grandfather's Chicago death certificate says "Chronic
bronchitis with asthma" with contributory cause "old age" -- he was
about 58, & had been treated by the doctor for 5 days. This may all be
correct, but I had always heard he died of that flu.

(not listing research this time as automatic signature should listed; if
not I will try to correct it)

On the death certificates for the 1918 flu, what did they label as the
cause? My grandmother had a brother who died at that time. I never saw
the death certificate, only burial records.
What would they say was the cause, for these deaths?
Abraham Schlissel, Detroit Mich. EDER and SCHLISSEL was my family in
Detroit. Thanks Gayle
