Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Questian on Death Certificate

Postby Grombone » 19 Jan 2010, 00:13

My grandfather was a resident in NJ but actually died in NY. Where do I need to look for a death certificate?

I don't think that's the answer I wanted. I think my grandfather has left be quite the obstacle course.

Unfortunately, it is notoriously difficult to get certified death certificates from New York State (non-NYC documents). Genealogical copies are available (they take a long time to get), but there are strict limits on who is entitled to certified copies.

I need this document to obtain dual citizenship. Is the State of New York that out of touch with people's needs for records?
