Re: Death in New York City and burial in New Jersey #germany #usa

June Genis

This raises a question for me about my own father's death.  Although he was buried in NJ the research I did in Trenton indicated that he actually died elsewhere, maybe NYC.  I found an index record with a certificate number on it but the NYC records office told me that it could not be located by that number although they never explained why.  They were unable to locate it based on the information I was able to give them.  Since my father Nathan Genis died of bone cancer it it quite possible that he was transferred from NJ to a cancer facility in NYC.  I tried contacting Sloane Kettering but they do not have records going back that far.  He died in December 1949, possibly on the 10th based on an obituary I found.

Can anyone suggest how I might obtain the actual death certificate? Here is the Find a Grave data. Note tht it says he died in NJ but that is not what the Trenton archives indicate.
