Hi, I have found my relative on the 1940 USA census in Cortland, New York. He is William Whitney, living at 20 Taylor Street, Cortland and is 56 years old. I know his occupation was a glazier.
I have been told that he worked on stained glass windows and fell off a Church roof, but I don't know if this story is true! Is there any way to trace his death, or an obituary for him? I have no idea when he died, so it might be a bit difficult.
I live in England, so am not sure what resources there are for tracing people in the USA.
Any help appreciated.
