maybe you can help me...
when we moved to FL in 1970 we lived in Cape Coral, FL a little town W of FT Myers on the W coast of FL.

in 1977 my wife became ill & we rushed her to Lee County Hospital on the main street of Ft Myers. She was in there 6 days and passed away, that was on 3 July, 1977. My daughter came from AZ where she lives w/her husband; he drove later; my son who had just graduated from UF was also there. We were so devasted by the happenings i cannot remember what went on or where (if i got one) I put the death certificate. I really need it.

Is there any way I can get a copy of that death certificate.


thank you

jep

Jep Welcome to TSG! It is not wise to post adresses and phone nimbers on the internet. I will put another post to have someone Private Message you if they have ideas for you.

The Registrar of Deeds in the county would be the first place to start. If they don't have it they should be able to tell you who does.

jimpritchard..........By law all states are required to maintain records of births and deaths. For that reason all states have a department usually with the name "vital statistics" or a variation thereof. For Florida please go HERE. It appears that you may be able to order it online.

Davey......Sorry but I felt this information may be useful to others and therefore felt I should post it here rather then a private PM. If I overstepped my bounds , again, sorry.

Not a problem. What I was referring to is personal information specific to Jim. Any leads anyone can give is more than acceptable.

I believe the mortuary 'usually' gives you two or three, so if you have any paperwork from them, you might look there.

[tsg=welcome] Welcome Jim [/tsg]

Usually the mortuary will retain copies of the death certificate, and will be glad to provide them for you...
