In Response To: Can't Find Death Certificate in PA. ()
The LDS FHC has death index films for Philadelphia. I would order those films for the post-1934 period. It's doubtful she lived beyond 1960. Whatever you do don't send them anymore money for so those called searches. You won't have any problems spotting your relative in an index but it's just something you can't count on others to do. Unless it just falls into their laps. I recall that my grandfather had an "r" incorrectly tacked on to the end of his name and the vital records folks could not find his death certificate, another family member was known by her real name to the family but everyelse knew her by a different name(one she just chose because she either didn't like the one she had or just the one she chose better) and at least in one case no remembered that another family died in a hospital in another county.
