I went into Ancestry to look at the description of what the index actually
contained. It was not very informative, as some of their descriptions can
be, but I found it interesting that while the index was titled 'Florida
Death Index, 1877-1998,' the description stated that it contained deaths for
1936-1998. Quite a difference.
