Ancestry is planning on adding more digitized Pennsylvania death certificates (to 1963) in the next few months. The above webpage will be updated when more years are added. The tentative schedule for when the remaining Pennsylvania death certificates will go online at Ancestry is:

1925-1944 -- now available (added June 24, 2014)
1945-1963 -- November 2014

These dates may change.

If you are a resident of Pennsylvania you may be able to access these Pennsylvania death certificates for free. See: Pennsylvania for more information.
