New Collection Spotlight: New York State Deaths, 1957-1964

The New York State Death Index contains information on deaths recorded in New York State besides those in New York City.

This collection will help everyone interested in locating New York State death records from 1957 to 1964. The Index contains information on decedents, place and date of death, gender, age at death and the State file number.

Death certificates are a primary source for family information. They are typically issued within days of a death and contain many details about a person's  life.

Certificates often include age, birthplace, parents' names and birthplaces and the cause of death.

This specific database of New York State Deaths compliments the Social Security Death Index (SSDI).  While SSDI does contain some records for deaths as far back as the 1930s, it has very little coverage (as a percentage of the population) until the mid-1960s.
