PENNSYLVANIA Public Death Records

The Vital Records Division of the Pennsylvania Department of Health only issues certified death records that contain the raised seal. The death record archives date back to 1906. For death records that are dated prior to 1906, you must consult the courthouse of the county or city where the person whose name appears in the record died.

If you do not know the specific year of the death certificate you are looking for, you will have to avail of the Multi-year death search service which costs $34. This covers one certificate as well as a search on a period of ten years of archives.

Take note that only eligible persons are allowed to request for a death certificate from Pennsylvania . Such eligible persons are the immediate family members of the deceased and his or her legal representatives.
