Yes, what is that number, anyway? I'm trying to obtain Fred Gerner's Pennsylvania death certificate (he's indexed as Fredrick K. Gener) and am having trouble reading the index. I thought you might be able to help me decipher the number. I can tell you that the number is not 39357 or 89357 (because they sent those certificates and they were not Fred's). But what is it?
Here's more of the index. I thought it might help to see other numbers. It didn't help me, but maybe someone else can decipher the numbers by comparing to other numbers.
I thought it might help to know the dates of other deaths around the time of Fred's death. Usually the death certificates are numbered sequentially by date of death (at least that's how they are in Ohio).
But the certificate number for a March 10 death is 33624; for a March 20 death it is 37190; and for a March 22 death it is 36486. So I don't think that helps much.
Thank you for any help you can give me in deciphering Fred's death certificate number. I'm sorry I can't give a prize to the closest guess when I'm finally able to obtain his death certificate!
