Notes
The New York State (NYS) Vital Records Section of the NYS Department of Health (DOH) files certificates for deaths that occur in New York State exclusive of New York City recorded deaths. Utilizing the Genealogical Research Death Index will narrow the search to the individual's death record certificate number, thereby minimizing the cost to the consumer. This Index contains information on decedents, parents, date of death, gender, age at death and NYS file number. Processing of a genealogy request by the NYS DOH may take eight (8) months or longer. If the municipality where the event took place is known, submitting your request directly to the local registrar or municipal clerk may save considerable time. Additional information is available in the Genealogical Research Death Index Overview which is in the below Dataset Information section.
