Question: When browsing for death records, which are listed by year, then volume, county, certificate number and then month, I often find that although the certificate numbers are in order, the month listed for the death date is different than the month found in the title of the file. Why is this?
Answer: Because of delayed recording, a county’s death certificates may be found in the following month’s volume or even later volumes. For example, the majority of El Paso County’s death certificates for January, 1977 are found in the appropriate alphabetical volume associated with February, 1977 (for example, 1977 > vol 19, Feb, certificates 9001-9500, Dallas-Galveston Counties).
Question #1: When browsing 1940 Death Certificates, Volume 4, Certificates 001501-002000 is missing. Is this volume available?
Answer #1: 1940, Certificates 001501-002000, Davis to Edwards County are missing. FamilySearch does not have a copy of these certificates.
Question #2: When browsing 1940 Death Certificates, Volume 4, Certificates 001501-002000 is missing. Is this volume available?
Answer #2: 1940, Certificates 001501-002000, Davis to Edwards County are missing. FamilySearch does not have a copy of these certificates.
