John Evan Pritchard LA
« on: Friday 24 July 15 21:55 BST (UK) »
Good evening I am wondering how much a death certificate would be for two of my ancestors one died in LA (the above) death 5/12/1948 and Evan Pritchard died in Providence Hospital Seattle death 25/12/1925.  Also are obits for newspapers relating to those cities available on the internet.
Many thanks in advance
Kind Regard

Washington State:  Death Cert $20 via regular mail; $31.50 via email or phone request.
see http://www.doh.wa.gov/LicensesPermitsandCertificates/BirthDeathMarriageandDivorce/OrderCertificates

Evan died 25 Dec 1924 and death info at http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov/Record/View/736784E92E6F6FDCB6D66764AF12DF41

If he and John were from Wales, they may have been living together in Seattle in 1910 census.

The Seattle Times, I believe, is available for that date from GenealogyBank.

Thank you so much - those certificates sound rather expensive.  i will have a look at the digalarchives for Evan.  Yes they were both from Llanrug and brothers.  I saw that John was working for the San Juan fishing Company, don't know about Evan though.

Once more thank you for taking your time to help me
Regards
Heather :)

Hello I have been trying the digital archives and there seems to be an error, is there anywhere else I can read the newspapers from that area.

regards
Heather :)

Digital Archives is showing the death cert not the obit. Seems to be working okay for me.

You can see the transcription of Evan's death certificate here also - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N3GP-MSV

Using this - http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives/?p_product=HA-SE&p_theme=histpaper&p_action=keyword - you can see a portion of the obituary and funeral notice for Evan.  It is a fee to view the whole article.

Hello Sandra - it's keeps timing out I have tried two computers and both say the same.  Not seen any declaration of intention, I will look at the links now.
 thank you
