Arrangement Note

The collection was arranged in chronological order and we kept this arrangement while making a complete list of death certificates in the collection. To find someone, search the document for last name. In some cases, the handwriting on the certificate was not very legible. We have put asterisks where we feel like we might have the wrong name.
