It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to share another genealogy jewel from my collection of stuff.
This week, it is the Death Certificate of Della (Smith) Carringer (1862-1944) in San Diego, San Diego County, California on 1 January 1944.
Items I learned from this death certificate:
Della was one of my great-grandmothers. The only new information on this death certificate, for me, was the death time, the place of cremation and funeral service, and the cause of death. There are several errors on this certificate, including her given name (which was Abbie Ardell Smith if you believe the Smith Bible records).
If I go down to the San Diego County Recorder's office next week and obtain a death certificate for Della, I don't think that all of the above information will be on the certificate.
