Historica Research and Records’
Pennsylvania Death Certificate Index
September 5, 2016: The Pennsylvania Death Index has moved to its new home on our free resources site, Record Hunter. We have made many major improvements to the index and added a few thousand names. The index can now be reached here.
August 28, 2016: We are currently making additions, corrections, and improvements to the Pennsylvania death certificate index. We are working to provide the actual place of death instead of abbreviations. We will also be replacing the hospital code listed in the index with the hospital name when it is available. The next update will also see the addition of 2,000+ entries.
A brief history of Pennsylvania death records, as well as a guide to using the index will be available soon.
