Vital Records in Detroit, Michigan

I want to find the cause of death for my grandmother, Esther Knoppow Glanz, and would appreciate it if someone could check it for me.  She died October 7, 1944 in Detroit.

If not, does anyone know how much a copy costs and how to obtain a copy of the certificate?

Joan,

Looks like the cost is $34.  Also, if you want the medical info than you have to order the long form.

This page should answer your questions.

https://www.michigan.gov/documents/deathapp_6467_7.pdf

*Short form vs. Long form (from front):A short form includes pertinent facts on who died, when and where they died, and the manner of death (natural, accidental etc.), but no medical information. A long form includes the full death registration including the medical conditions reported and other circumstances that led to death

Good luck in your search,

Handwriting is hard to read. Cause if death was cirrhosis of the liver, along with myocardial disease.
Thanks to Michigan for posting death certificates online!
