Re: BING Elvira Maudestein PA d/c 1931?

HI Diane,

This must be your Elvira. It was the ONLY Elvira Bing in the 1900 Census. It can be difficult to find old vital records, but they are also more likely to be available to the public, don't give up. Have you tried visiting the RAOGK.org website to see if they have any volunteers who can lookup vital records in PA?
