I really hate when this happens. I wrote to the Georgia Department of Public Health for a death certificate. I had the exact date of death so I thought I was in good shape. Wrong. I just got the dreaded “Certificate of Death Not on File.” ARGGGG!
I have this lady’s obituary and sexton records so I have her date of death, her name at death and her place of death. She died in 1948 which is well after 1919 when Georgia first required death certificates.
Well, at least I have a pretty, certified letter.
