I will check. Vital Statistics is conveniently
located to me. If I find that you cannot get your
death certificate, there are other sources of
information that you can use to verify the death--like
obituaries in the Richmond Times-Dispatch or in the
local paper of the deceased. Here, only birth
certificates have been restricted. Even in this case,
if a person states that he is a genealogist, the
restriction will be lifted. I will get back to you at
some point today with the information. Later, Carol
