Chronological Listing:

 

Ocober 24, 2014 - Ancestry.com has put the third batch of death records online (1945-1963).  This is the overall schedule:

 

1906-24 death certificates April 18, 2014

1925-44 death certificates June 24, 2014

1945-63 death certificates October 24, 2014

March 2015 birth certificates (1906)

Pennsylvania residents (and only Pennsylvania residents) have free access to this particular database as they do with other Pennsylvania States Archives records already scanned and made available online by Ancestry. Access for Pennsylvania residents is accomplished by registering online through this link:
http://www.portal.state.pa.us/. Out of state residents do need a subscription to Ancestry to access these records. However, many libraries and research centers everywhere provide free access to Ancestry.

 

Keep in mind that many names are misspelled on the original certificates and mistakes in indexing (most especially on Ancestry) are to be absolutely expected. So if you don't find who you are looking for keep looking.

 

January 1, 2014 - Pennsylvania state death certificates from 1963 and birth certificates from 1908 are now open records and available at the Pennsylvania State Archives in Harrisburg. However, these records are slated to be scanned by Ancestry.com shortly so they won't be available at the Archives while they are being scanned.

 

June 28, 2013 - As of July 1, 2013 the PA Department of Health no longer provides non-certified copies of birth and death certificates (that are open records). That responsibility will be handled by the Pennsylvania State Archives. However, the Archives will charge $5 for each non certificated copy rather than $3 charged by the Department of Health. Hopefully when Ancestry.com finally has the records online it will dramatically increase access and drastically reduce the cost to most researchers.
