|1962 Certificate of Death|
Death records usually include the name of the deceased, date and place of death, age at the time of death, cause of death, occupation, name of spouse and, beginning in 1914, name and birthplace of parents, along with the date and place of burial.
Information on a death certificate is dependent upon how much firsthand knowledge the informant or next-of-kin knew about the deceased.
Vital records are an important resource for those conducting genealogical research, or for individuals who need vital records for documentation purposes. If you are looking for a vital record for a loved one, please contact our Public Services staff for information about how to search these records.
