1935 Death Records of Monroe County, Florida
Extracted from the Florida Death Index of 1935 
(LDS microfiche #____________
The early records were typewritten probably on light-weight paper and 
some areas are very blurred.  Some of this is guess work.
When you write to the Bureau of Vital Statistics give them
as much information as you have available
      on the person who's death record you are requesting.
