NY State Death Indexes on microfiche #usa #records

Thanks Robert, but it's likely that MyHeritage's information comes from the same NY State database as Ancestry's, and that database includes only "residence code," not place of death. 

Morris's residence code was 7096 -- the state's code for Queens and for 100+ neighborhoods within Queens -- including Far Rockaway, where Morris actually lived. (See the NY State Gazetteer at
https://www.health.data.ny.gov/api/assets/991FD0D8-73AF-4573-96F1-437E33D24BCA -- page 138.) As one very knowledgeable colleague pointed out to me, Ancestry lists everyone with a 7096 residence code as a resident of Aqueduct -- perhaps the area near Aqueduct Racetrack, in southern Queens. This explains Sherri Bobish's find:

<<The All New York State, U.S., Death Index, 1957-1969 on Ancestry lists 14,444 persons with residence place as Aqueduct, Queens.>>

On the other hand, that index includes no listings for such heavily populated parts of Queens as Astoria, Elmhurst, Flushing, Forest Hills, Long Island City, etc.

Sherri Bobish says the SSDI lists Far Rockaway as the last address.  If Morris was living with  or listed a relative who is responsible for him with Social Security, and their address was Far Rockaway that is what Social Security lists. I know from when I was listed as responsible for my late father- he was in a nursing home and did not live in the town as I did, but Social Security listed my town as last residence as his Social Security payments were made to out to me for his care and therefore in my residence.

However, the SSDI lists his last residence as Far Rockaway.

Renee,

The All New York State, U.S., Death Index, 1957-1969 on Ancestry lists 14,444 persons with residence place as Aqueduct, Queens.

Could the area around the 
Aqueduct Racetrack have at one time been known as Aqueduct?
For example, the areas today called 
Ozone Park and South Ozone Park?

However, the SSDI lists his last residence as Far Rockaway.

I am trying to find the town where Morris Kamhi died on 20 Dec. 1968.

The NY State Death Index on Ancestry provides this information...
 
Name: Morris Kamhi
Gender: Male
Age: 81
Birth Date: abt 1887
Residence Place: Aqueduct, Queens, New York, USA
Death Date: 20 Dec 1968
Death Place: New York, USA
Certificate Number: 100515
 
... but not the town where death occurred.
 
The decidedly user-unfriendly New York State index at 
has similar information. (Ancestry helps by deciphering Residence Code 7096.)
 
According to Mount Hebron Cemetery, where Morris is buried, he died in Hempstead, NY (Nassau County, Long Island) -- but the clerk of the Town of Hempstead could find no record.
 
Does anyone know whether any of the libraries which hold copies of  NYS death indexes on microfilm have them for 1968? In the past they had indexes to NYS deaths that occurred over 50 years ago, but I wonder if NYS has continued to update the libraries' holdings -- and also whether a microfiched index for 1968 is likely to include town of death. (I believe that fiche for earlier years do.)
 
I know that I can order the record from NY State, but would much prefer to request it from a town clerk, who is likely to respond sooner.
 
Thank you.
