immigrated. Prior to 1906, the death records were kept by the
counties. All I was told was that he died in "hard coal" country so I
started with the state first because that was the easiest approach. If I
recall correctly, I sent a request in to PA Vital Records and the cost was
$3.00 for each year searched or a total of $9.00, in my case, for the
period of 1906 to 1909. I believe there is a different rate for searching
by the decade but since I was only interested in the 3 years, it was
cheaper to do it yearly.
