How are deaths nowhere to be found except gravestones? I need the month and day to try for certificates. Clara Berge, Riverview Cemetery Streator, Il. Esther Carlson Berge...both wives of George Berge who appears in indexes....Do county clerks still have death certificates or did they all go to the state for those indexes? Are the indexers hoping we will submit "lost in the mist of time" deaths they don't have?
