Do you want to know how Gov Resources allows you to carry out online public records? It is one of the sites online that allow people to search for records. There are other methods of searching like from government agencies, libraries etc. that are free. There are governing rules that restrict the amount of information that can be retrieved from them though. So far, the best method for finding public records has been through the internet.

1. How Can You Start Searching for Online Public Records?

Starting your search from public record sites would be a good start. There are free and paid sites. Free sites would only give you basic information and lacked many important details when I was looking through them. They usually do not display confidential information like the address and name of the person you are looking for.

Birth and death certificates public record?

October 25th, 2011 1 comment

I have heard that birth and death certificates are public record yet its so darn hard to find them and when ya do you have to pay to see them. I dont want a copy sent to me i just want to see them. My boyfriend was in jail and his mother commited suicide. We have nol idea where she is buried or even the day she died. It must be very hard on him not knowing where his mothers body was laid to rest. I want to ask him about it but i know he is hurt over the whole thing. So does anyone know where i can find public records on a persons death online?

You must write in your request to the local state requesting birth and death certificates.

a family member of hers might be able to access this certificate but you’re not authorized.

government owned websites contain instructions on how to access these records. learn more:

Missing marriage records?

October 25th, 2011 3 comments

I’ve been helping a relative do some research on his family, and wee have a recording someone in his family did where his Grandmother describes having been married 4 different times between 1917-1960. Thing is, we can’t find a single marriage record for the woman. Not in any of the Indiana counties that she lived in during that period, or in St. Louis, MO where she claims on the recording that at least 3 of the marriages took place.

We have located the birth records for the children that she had with the first 2 husbands, (showing they were just barely legitimate) and census records showing her last name as having been changed to the 3rd husband’s name, plus her SS death record where she has husband #4’s last name (plus she’s buried with him)

At the time that the recording was made, I don’t think anyone believed there was any reason to question her version of events, or would have even if they thought of it. Now, many years later it is a matter of curiosity for the family and no one is left alive to really get upset about whether she was telling the truth or not.

My question is this: Is there a likely database or location where these marriage records may be stored that I’m missing? i can understand not being able to find a record of her last marriage, since neither Indiana or Illinois publishes the records for marriages that took place in the 50’s and 60’s. Plus that one some people actually remember seeing take place, so there’s no doubt it occurred. The first three marriages though we ought to be able to find, right? Is this something even worth chasing, or does it sound like maybe the marriages never actually took place?

I’m just trying to make sure that I’m not missing a resource, I’d hate to make a long trip trying to track this down in MO if the woman was simply engaging in a little revisionist’s history while she delivered her memoirs.
Shenaya- sorry, I failed to mention that she gave specific dates for the first two marriages (and divorces) and a year for the 3rd marriage and divorce. Going off of census records, draft cards and city directories in addition to the birth records of the children that she had with husbands 1 and 2, and a picture that was found of husband 3, I am certain she did in fact have relationships with all 3 men. I just haven’t been able to find any marriage records. Husband 1 married someone else shortly after she is supposed to have divorced him, husband 2 was married to someone else briefly a few years before she married him (this is the recollection of a 93 yr old niece of his) but I don’t have anything to tell me whether he was widowed, divorced or separated, and 3 was described as a playboy of sorts, I know he had a wife 3 years prior to when she would have married him, and I can’t be sure a divorce ever took place their either.
Joyce- I’m not used to giving personal info on YA, even when it isn’t mine. Sorry. The people and relevant dates in question are:

Lydia May Nolan
married James B Weir of Fountain Co IN sometime in 1916. Location unknown. Divorced 1-5-1917.
married Horace Sterling Zick of Fountain Co IN on 12-24-1918 in St Louis MO, divorced by 1922
married Thomas Larimore of Pekin, Tazewell, IL sometime in 1922 in St Louis MO, divorced 1923

Yes, I am on I’ve got records on these people out the wazoo, just none to explain whether all the bed hopping was done with the proper paperwork having been filed.
Maxi- actually when i started working on this (for my 3rd cousin) I had absolutely nothing but 2 iffy names and a location. My great aunt sent him to me because he wanted to find out about his father’s family and I am the only person in our family who is both interested in genealogy and familiar with the computer. His whole problem was that that side of his family was never an acceptable topic of conversation while his father was alive. So I started digging and finding records, starting with his dad and then good old grandma, then a birth record, then another birth record for another kid with a different guy. I must have 200 emails back and forth from me finding a record or having an idea and him digging up a piece of information from someone to corroborate it. I have enough records that I can put together a reasonable chronology for everyone involved, but to me, considering the time period, all the brief marriages and quick divorces that were supposedly taking place just in time

If you don’t provide names, all we can do is give generic answers. She could have been playing fast and loose with the truth, or the records simply aren’t online yet. Have you contacted the state vital records office requesting a copy of the marriage certificates? Are you using for your search?

Are these the same people?

I know that my great grandmother’s name was Kathryn Lescher and that lived in Ohio as a child. I found her in the 1910 census living with her mother whose name is listed as Mary King. I then proceeded to find a death record for a Mary Lescher who was also born in Germany, buried in Ohio and died in Michigan, which is where she was living towards the end of her life. On this death record, her father is listed as having the last name Stein. I then found a marriage record in 1902 for a Mary Stein and a Joseph Lescher in the same area of Ohio. Finally, I found a death record for a Joseph Lescher in 1907 and a marriage record for a Mrs. Mary Lescher and a John King in 1908. Given all of these records, does this all seem to fit together well enough to conclude that these are the same people and in fact my ancestors?
Sorry. John King was also in the home in 1910. I was able to find Mary in the 1900 census but she was living with her sister who she must have come to America with while her parents stayed back in Germany.
Also, her burial was in the same place as where she lived for a large portion of her life growing up.
And the 1910 census says she’s married twice to further back up the two different marriages. The only weird thing is that with the dates she would have married at about 17 years old to a man about 13-14 years older. On the other hand, John King is 13 years older than her as well, so I guess that makes it seem more believable.

Almost all of it is real clear that Mary was married 1st to Joseph, married 2nd as widow to John King, and thus her name is correct in the 1910 census.
My question might be what happened to John King? he wasn’t in the home in 1910? did she divorce him and resume using the prior Lescher name?
Whether or not the death record is your Mary is open to question, even with the last name of Stein. You would need to match up the dates to determine if it is close enough. WHERE is the Ohio burial? is it in the same location as she was raised?
I would still work to find Mary in the 1900 census, and define who the parents were. If they are buried in the same locality as the Mary whose death record you have.. it would be more evidence.

Quebec, Canada Ancestry?

May 27th, 2011 3 comments

I saw one of my old questions and one anwser said i should put information on my Quebec ancestry because it was well researched and see if anyone could find anything. So here it is.
My GGGgrandfather Alfred Blondin was born in Quebec Canada Circa 1840, his brother was Stanislas. Alfred’s son was Joseph Blondin. Joseph Blondin moved to cook county Illinois and appeared on the 1880 census in the U.S. In Alfred’s death record it say’s his father was Jos, probably Joseph and born in Canada.

I believe I found the birth record in the Drouin collection for Quebec vital records, using (Canadian database.)

Since the record is in French and in a script that is rather hard to read without actually looking at the original paper record, this is what I can translate for you . . .

Religion: Catholique (Catholic)
Place: Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire, St-Hyacinthe (the name of the county), Quebec –
Birth year: 1840
Birth date: may be 24 July; The record is on a page dated "Vingt Cinquieme" (25th) and the month looks like Juillet (July.) Part of the written record is: "né hier soir" (born last evening/night), which would make the birth date 24 July.
Full given name: Narcisse Alfred Désiré Blondin
Father: Joseph Blondin, boulanger (baker – his occupation)
Mother: Hélène Robert (Robert probably was her maiden name. This was legal to do, even though she and Joseph were married. It was the custom in Quebec for a long time.)
Both were members of the parish "de cette paroisse," translates as "of this parish."
Godfather/Sponsor (the word in the document is "le parrain"): Antoine Robert
Godmother/Sponsor (the phrase in the document is "la marraine"): Rose Benoit tante de l’enfant (aunt of the baby)

That’s the best I can do.

If you wish to ask someone look up the actual/real record and send you an image of it, if they can, here is a link to a web page of a genealogy help list for Quebec province:
Be sure to read the info in the link: Guidelines For Requesting Help
The person on the list who covers St. Hyacinthe County is listed.

In case you are interested, this is the mailing/street address for the church:
Paroisse (Parish) Notre-Dame-du-Rosaire
2200, rue Girouard Ouest, C.P. 128
Saint-Hyacinthe, Qc, J2S 7B4

Unsolicited advice . . .

If you will be conducting more Quebec ancestor research, you may wish subscribe to the International databases of for just 1 month, do "a heck of a lot of research" in one month’s time, and then cancel the monthly subscription. There are some free resources for Canadian research, but research in Quebec online is very "tricky," (including "creative" spellings of surnames and what are called "dit" surnames.) A lot of those databases are just not available for free. The Drouin records are not available for free anywhere, as far as I can tell, unless you cross the Canadian border and use the Canadian databases of at a Canadian public library. 🙂

Whew! This is probably all more than you want to know.

Where can I find free downloadable death records for pennsylvania 1923?

May 15th, 2011 2 comments

I’m trying to locate my great aunt -Margaret Dougherty – whom I knew nothing about until yesterday when I found a letter from a Mrs. Weston informing my great grandmother that she had died (1923) and was to be buried in the local church, the funeral was to be paid for out of the $300 she had in her bank account. With it I found a letter from margaret dated a year previous, begging her family to take her home so she could die in Ireland. I cannot seem to be able to access any online databases…i know she had been in a hospital

Where should I start?

You don’t say if Dougherty is your aunts birth name or married name.
I have done a search on and the only record I could find was a 1920 census listing a Margaret Dougherty aged 66,born in Ireland and living as a lodger at no.6 Bells Court,possibly flat or room 55. She was single and unemployed and unable to read or write.This was in enumeration district 122.Area5,Philadelphia,Pennsylvania. If this was her and she died in 1923 she would have been about 69/70 (1854–1923)
This seems to have been quite a large boarding house and there were quite a number of other Irish boarders there. If it was her,she may have got someone else to write a letter for her.
Cannot find a death record for her. Hope this helps.
edit: Just found some passenger lists but need a probable birth year to try to match up margaret as there are a number of people with the same name.

Birth and Death records in NYC?

April 25th, 2011 1 comment

I am looking for a 1885-6 New York birth record for Joseph M Boyle. Michael J and Margaret Boyle,(his parents) were both born in Ireland. Also, possibly a death record, sometime after 1911 and before 1930 for Joseph M Boyle. His wife was named Mable Hurley and he had a daughter,Dorothy(1908),and a son,Joseph T (1911)Any help will be appreciated immensly.

Go to and look in the Births, deaths….. folder. There are a number of NYC indexes there for birth and deaths. Read the FAQ. You should be able to narrow the time span for those events and get the certificate numbers and who to get them from.

Wills are public records. Death benefits and beneficiaries of life insurance or annuities, are not.

Are death certificates public record?

April 14th, 2011 3 comments

In California are death certificates public record? If so, is there a way to get a copy or a look at one online?

No they are not. You can only get a copy if you can prove you are a parent, a child, grandparent, grandchild, brother or sister, spouse, or domestic partner of the deceased.

The other people who can get that are law enforcement and the probate attorney.

They become public record in 110 years.
