1893 - 1943 New York City Deaths for Individuals from Lyakhovichi: 182 Records

The chronological lists rely entirely on the hard work of the Italian Genealogy group of New York City, which created an index to NYC deaths. The webmaster organized a chronological list of those buried in Lechovicher plots in NYC and sought the names of those in the death index between 1893 and 1933. Then Tina Levine, an awesome volunteer, went to the NYC Municipal Archives and found all of those that appeared in this list in actual death certificates. Her collected data was organized into a Death Certificate Database and indexed further to allow us to search for parents and spouses named in the records. Tina has arduously sought out and found almost all of the ones listed between 1893 and 1933, but we need the help of individuals who are willing to purchase copies of their relatives' records from New York state for the later period.
