I once found a relative's death certificate which was 20 years off from
her real age and the only reason I did not pass it by on the NYC Death
Indexes was because it was a very rare name and I knew it was her.

It was very common for people to give the wrong age.  Often, the birth year
is different with every census.  The six-year difference does not eliminate
this Elizabeth Christiansen.  You may have to order the cert to know one way
or another. You can also order a search for a number of years from NYC,
altho that is more money. Virginia

Subject: [NYC-ROOTS] Elizabeth (Elisa) Christiansen

Im looking for the death date or certificate for Elizabeth Christiansen,
mostly seen as Elisa or Eliza.  She was born in Denmark October 21, 1838.
The last time I find anything on her was on the 1910 census living with her
son August Christiansen at 337 Guernsey St. in Brooklyn, NY. Im assuming she
died between 1910 and 1920 but I cant find her death record on the
IGG...there is a woman with her name on the IGG but the birth date would be
about 6 yrs off so I dont think thats her.

I have a distant cousin in Denmark who is writing an article for a genealogy
magazine about her and she has asked me if I can help her find her death
date or where she might be buried.

Her husband died before 1900, his name was Christian Peter Christiansen and
was born about 1841 in Denmark.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks
Kim
