New York City Death Index Database

This database, hosted by the Italian Genealogical Group of Long Island is an index of almost 1,400,000 death records in NYC from 1868 to 1894 (Manhattan Only), 1862 to 1897 (Brooklyn Only), and 1898 to 1948 (All Boroughs). This was accomplished by scanning the original index books - no transcription! A link back to the NYC Municipal Archives is provided for requesting a copy of the original certificate.
