I have been so busy today perusing the PENNSYLVANIA DEATH INDEX. I thought it would take a long time to get it online, but it appears that it was already indexed and it just had to show up. I have found about four family people that I have been searching.
There are a number of years in the twenties that are index by the Russell Index, I think that Russell, whoever he was, was a sadist. I tried to follow the instructions and it was difficult to grasp. BUT, I found SOUNDEX CALCULATOR from Eastman’s Genealogy Newsletter. The calculator is great I no long have to pull out my hair, just put in the name and there it is.
The cost is now $3.00 as opposed to $10.00, but it now states that it will take fourteen to sixteen weeks to get your certificate. If you are like me you will have forgotten what you have sent for and when you did it.
I am really excited about this index
