Can anyone help? I need a copy of the death certificate for Julius Kozloff (my Grandfather) who died 12/4/1949. Cannot get it as there is a 75 year wait. Thank you.

Barbara,
There certainly is the discrepancy in the date of death in the death record found by Linda Kelley. If this is the Julius KOZLOFF you are seeking, married to Bella (née BELACHEFSKY), with sons Benjamin and Harold, and daughter Elaine (married to David RIESMAN), the Julius who owned a fish market (information from the 1940 US Federal Census and his brief death notice in the Detroit Free Press on Sunday, 7 Sep 1947), then the information was as she provided. From his listing in the Detroit Border Crossings and Passenger and Crew Lists, 1905-1963, his birth date was about 1887 (as he was 38 on his arrival in Detroit on 8 Aug 1925). Hence he would have been about 60 when he died, not 7. (From directories, it appears that Bella eventually moved to Miami Beach, FL.)

This information doesn’t give you the actual death certificate, but it at least allows you to verify the online information if pertinent and use that as some documentation.

Sincerely,
