Death Certificate vs Death Record

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.

Death Certificate vs Death Record

Postby ericderrico » 19 Oct 2010, 21:42

From what I have been told by the Miami Consulate's website, records need to be in long form, including Death Records that include the parents' names. For my GGF originally from Italy, I have his Certificate of Death from the mortician/doctor, but not the long form with his parents' names. Would this be acceptable or should I pay vital records in New Jersey for the longer Death Record?

Only a long form is accepted because it receives a raised seal from the state. A genealogical record wont be accepted and cant get apostille seal either

Oddly enough there is a raised seal on the Death Certificates, but I'll go ahead and the record from New Jersey anyway just to be certain.

Thanks!
