      Kathy,

      You would have to know which borough she died in, as the Death Indexes
      are organized by boroughs (Manhattan, Bronx, Kings (Brooklyn), Queens
      and Richmond (Staten Island) all on one film. If you don't know which
      borough you would have to search each individual section of the film.
      "NYC" is often used to describe Manhattan of course, but this is what
      tends to confuse researchers in this area... you have to specify whether
      you mean Manhattan or another borough.

      If you know the date of death, or even the month and year, you would
      still have to know the borough to request the death cert from the
      Municipal Archives in Manhattan. They charge $10 for one name in one
      year in one borough, add $2 for each additional borough or year to
      check.

      I have some Death Indexes for NYC area on loan, but not one for 1922.
      You can order these indexes via your local FHC. use film # 1324918 which
      is the death index for 1918-1921 to bring up the whole entry in the LDS
      catalog either online or at your FHC.

      Researching in the NYC area (boroughs) can be tricky, but in general the
      area is well filmed by the LDS and of course NY state had off year
      censuses since 1855 which is great for finding people. If you are doing
      a lot of searching in any of the boroughs you might want to join the
      wonderful NYC list, send subscribe to NYC-ROOTS-L-request@...
      or change the L to D for digest. It's a busy list, but wonderful people
      on it, and lots of help there.

      Hope this helps you.
