Death Certificates & Burial Permits Issued in the

City of St. Augustine, 1880-81

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

 

 

This is a continuation of the death certificates and burial permits printed in Vol. VIII, Issue 3 (Aug.1997, The Ancient City Genealogist) from the St. Augustine city papers in the St. Augustine Historical Society Research Library (MC-65).

 

Remember that these death records were sometimes written on scraps of paper (printed forms came later). The information varies and most of it is secondary source information, so it cannot be used as complete proof. In addition, legibility is a problem with these records! Trying to read pre-1900 handwriting is never easy, but the doctors didn't always know how to spell the names of the people or the diseases which adds to the difficulty.
