A relative by marriage is trying to get the death certificate for her grandfather - Stephen Hausdorf. She knows from a newspaper obituary in a Martinez paper that he died Nov 26, 1935 in Contra Costa county, CA. The request was sent to the state offices with a check, but came back no record found.
I have tried to search for many variant spellings on Vital Search records in their 1930-1939 CA death records. So far have not found the record either.
I've found online records for him as Stephen Hausdorf, Stephan Housdorf, Samuel Housdorf. Birth records for grandchildren and other relatives list the name as Hausdolf, Hamedor, Hamedorf, Hausman, Hausdorf, Hausdorff and Housdorf.
I would love any help I could get to find this death certificate.
