November 23rd, 2011 2 comments

Born sidney marshall. In geogia maybe stewart county and worth county around 1860 to 70 I believe one of her children was my great grandmother. Was married to george jackson. I also need information on him also and they’re death records including cause of death and date of death. I also need what race they were. I need information on my great grandmother illinois also including cause of death and date of death. Someone help me I’m starting a genealogy project.

There’s this one, it says son, but if you look at the original the M for male is a lot darker than the other writing on the page as though it has been written over something.

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.

Can’t find anything except for her children’s death records? Help?

November 9th, 2011 1 comment

Her name is Lillian Tyler, born June 15 1918 in Kings, New York. She married Albert Pacini. Had some kids, two of them died. Only records I found of her were in 1920 when she lived with a huge family (unable to find out which Tyler was her parent after extensive researching…no birth record). No residence record after the 1920 NY record. And the only other two that I found were with her and her husband’s name on it for a death certificate of her two kids in a 5 year period. My aunt Carol (lillian and albert’s daughter) said she left her sibling in 1945 because of her depression from losing two kids. I have been searching everywhere (especially…very helpful) but can not seem to find anything else on her. Why isn’t she documented? Why can’t I find a birth certificate, a marriage certificate, a residence after 1920, anything? I really want to be able to help my aunt find out who her mom was and if she is still alive or not or where she died. If anyone can give me some advice or help me out or explain to me why she seems to disappear after 1920, it would be greatly appreciated. She is such a mystery to everyone in my aunts family and we all want to find out what happened or a little bit more about her. I thought everyone had to participate in the census? Why can’t I find anything else on her?
Thank you for answering! I really need some help.

There’s lots of reasons why you may not find someone in an online resource ranging from they don’t have the helpful record, the name is indexed so poorly it’s not searchable, they moved and you’re looking in the wrong location, the information on the record is wrong, or there’s some fact you don’t know (i.e. she remarried or somehow got listed under a stepfather’s name). It’s likely she is documented, you just can’t find the documents so far. There are some cases where a person is undocumented. Sometimes by choice, sometimes by the cruelties of life (i.e. died a Jane Doe), and often because the documents have been destroyed (i.e. courthouse fires).

You may find it helpful to go ahead and order a birth (& maybe marriage) record direct from the appropriate agency:

I wouldn’t try to order a death record until you can be certain she has died and what name she may have died with (i.e. remarried). Find A Grave may be helpful. There seems to be a couple possibilities with a maiden name Tyler born in 1918. For this site, spelling counts so try multiple variations.

Birth Certificate, Death Certificate?

September 29th, 2011 4 comments

I want to view someone’s birth and death certificates and records how do I do this, I would like to do it in person not online, where would I go and will they allow you to view them if this person died as a minor? Also can you make a copy of it? And would they even let me see them if I’m only 17? I want to see these because this person is important in my life and I never got to meet him because he died a week after I was born. This is in California, Sonoma County. Thank you such for your answers.

The Sonoma County Clerk-Recorder-Assessor’s office is the place to go, provided you are one of the legally authorized relationships to this person. Being a minor you may need a parent or other authorized person to go with you. The link gives the address, fees, authorized relationships and all pertinent details.

They will not allow you to look through the records to locate his, nor will you be looking at the original. You will need to order the copy and pay the copy fee, but this can be done in person at the office.

Can someone help me find my bisabuelos parents names?

September 9th, 2011 3 comments

My great grandfather was Florencio Bribiesca. He was born in Penjamo, Mexico on October 28 1896. Apparently he came to America in 1917 through Texas. He had a wife whose name I dont know and a son named Antonio. Aparently she died in a car crash in Oklahoma. He lived in Texas for the most part untill the mid 1930s. He worked on the Rail Road. He married my bisabuela Cyrilla Parra in Taylor, Texas in 1929 I believe. (I dont have it right in front of me.) They had several sons: Johnny, Jose, and Gregory. Towards the end of the 1930’s he moved to Finney County, Kansas. He died there on his birthday October 28, 1991. If I can get any help Death Records or Obits I would be very thankful.

This looks like great grandfather in 1930. A bisabuela a grandparent?

Marriage records in Michigan.?

August 15th, 2011 5 comments

So I located the marriage record on-line for my great grandparents,born in the mid 1800s.The information about their parents names and where they came from,wasn`t there.So, I need to either travel to the town where the record is,or send them $15.00 by mail.Will I get a copy of the actual record?I need brakes on my car and with gas prices so high,I thought I would write for it,but then I worry,I will get the wrong record,or the information I need won`t be there.Mich has not released all the death records and a person has to be dead for 150 years before you can obtain a birth certificate.Anyone that has been dead that long,likely was not even born here.The reason I couldn`t find it before,my great grandmother`s last name was misspelled on-line,but not on the actual record.I have gotten more information from family search,than my worthless subscription.
You were all very helpfull.Hard to pick a best answer.

Having read your other question, I’m going to answer parts of both in one place.

I have pretty good experience with Michigan marriage records. First, you need to know that there are different types of "marriage records". This is a generic term for anything that documents a marriage, whether it be a marriage license or certificate issued to the couple, a return book, record book, marriage bond, or register book. Each of these will have different information about the couple. In Michigan each county determines what records they keep and what information will be on them. Some counties have made frequent changes. If you get information from the record about the parents is hit and miss. In Michigan they often have place of residence, but usually do not have place of birth or places associated with the parents.

Since you are looking for a copy, I suspect you have not located the record online, but rather an index or transcription of the record. This source should give you the precise information you need to find the copy they indexed or transcribed from. If it was from Family Search you might be able to take the source code information to a Family History Center and request the microfilm. If it’s from a published genealogy book you can sometimes request an inter-library loan from your local branch library, request a photocopy of the page of interest, or check Google Books.

A few tips about ordering records from public agencies: they will not do research and they will not guess, no matter how logical or obvious. They will look for exactly what you ask them to look for. If the date range you ask for is 1 day off, if a name is spelled 1 letter off, or if your information gives them more than 1 possible record you may get a note back saying the record could not be found. This is why the indexes online are helpful. They *should* be exactly as they appear in the record. In both cases this requires that someone is able to read the handwritten record (i.e. Elmira and Elvira can get confused). When you send away to the agency they will either photocopy the information from their books, or they will transfer the information to a form and this form is considered a copy (although not always certified).

GenWebs do not provide records, they provide a place where people can post information and links to helpful resources. What the GenWeb itself provides is free, but not all of the resources they list will be.

When someone dies in unknown Hospice Care Center..where do they take the Body? How can I find out ?

August 15th, 2011 1 comment

I’ll try to keep this as consise as humanely possible:

Great Aunt Dies. (mid 80s, Alzheimers. Within last 3 days).

Her "next of kin" is terminally ill & in Care Facility. Can not be reached. Has no info anyway. Not coherant.

Great Aunt had been removed from her original Hospice Care to ANOTHER Hospice Care Facility that is UNKNOWN. Both unknown.

Aunt passes away.

Someone (unknown) phoned adult relative who had a brain aneurysm (6 yrs ago) and is = to a young child, to give details. All she remembers is they said Auntiie Gwennie died. She did not write down what was said. Caller i.d. says RESTRICTED.

The only other "next of kin" is a relative who’s recovering from brain surgery. (I only WISH I was trolling, kidding, or lying). She doesn’t know anything and is in NYC.

No, there is no foul play suspected.

I don’t know how this process works. There is no one (able enough) to ASK. I have no idea about any last directives, or her wishes. She wasn’t capable of complex thought for years. I don’t know if they pronounce someone dead at Hospice, or they send them to Hospital, or the Morgue, or what. I don’t know where (her body) she is. I’ve been searching, on-line, to get a list of possible Hospice Care Centers, Morgues, Mortuaries..even Arizona newspaper obits.. but I can’t get any info. I understand medical and death records are private, but if the "next of kin" are not capable, then I have to find her and make arrangements. There’s no one else.

I do not have her Social Security Number. No one does.

When one passes at unknown facility..
Hospital? Morgue? Coronor? Do any of the above RECORD this anywhere? She lived in Arizona. I live in California.

Getting panicky.

Is there a web-site, or Hospice Care Directory..
I could go to/phone to take care of her body?

My Q&As repeat themselves lately and I don’t know why. Yahoo techs haven’t told me why it’s doing this. Sorry. I know it’s obnoxious, but I can’t make it stop.

Here in Illinois a body is stored at the Morgue until the funeral home comes out to get the person if the death occurs in the hospital. At least here. In order for you to be in a hospice program that has to be already arranged. You might try consulting the first hospice location to see if they can direct you to the other. Another try is I am sure a death has to be reported to the coroner either way.

Are death records public or are they private?

August 1st, 2011 3 comments

We got a call that my friend was dead. The family wouldn’t say how or why. We called the courthouse and they said only family is privy to that information. It has been a couple years and I’d like to dig for the information. I always thought circumstances of death are public record…but so far, since we are not provable family, we are unable to get information.

It amazes me how many celebrities die from drug overdoses, murder, auto-erotic-asphyxiation (INXS, David Carradine), DUI’s and other car crashes. We get to hear all the gory details when I’m sure the families would rather the information stay private. I’m not sure why I don’t have the same power as the media being a citizen of the USA.

If anyone has any tips on how I can get this information, please let me know.
I live in CA now but it happened in New York City where I used to live.

They are public information and you need to contact the county the friend died in to receive a copy of the death certificate.

BUT…as you said, families of the celebrities would like to have that information stay private. Please give the same respect to you friends family, whether you like them or not. Although it is public record, it it is still a private matter.

Where can I search for death records for FREE?

July 10th, 2011 6 comments

I have gone to several different sites but they all end up asking for money. I thought death records were public records and anyone should be able to search for a loved one but I’m hitting dead ends everywhere.

I put some links below. I wanted to deal with a common misconception first.

> I thought death records were public records

They are, and if you send the name and death date to the appropriate county courthouse, plus a check, which may be as little as $5 or as much as $35, you can get a copy. There isn’t any law that says a state or county has to spend tax money on a web site to make death records available for free.

By contrast, some records are NOT public; sealed adoptions records, and agreements hashed out between two parties in a civil lawsuit, for instance. You cannot get them no matter how much you pay.


These are all free. Some have ads at the top, which sometimes ask for a name and take you to a pay site, so be careful to distinguish between the advertisement and the input form. An index will have name, date and maybe something else; death records – 500 KB jpg’s of death certificates – are rare. Some of these say "Records" – I copied the page title – but are really indexes.

Social Security Death Index
1960ish – now; almost 90 million entries in November 2010.

53 million entries in November 2010, mostly the USA. Entries range; they may have one or more of:
Exact birth and death dates
A short biography/obituary
Links to the person’s parents’ graves and/or and children’s graves
Picture(s) of the person
The best ones have all of the above; the worst ones have just a name and year of death; "J. Smith, b. ????, d. 1912".

Arizona genealogy
Births 1855 – 1934; deaths 1844 – 1959. Real records, not an index. Number of entries not given.

California Death index
9,366,786 entries from 1940 – 1997

Kentucky Death Records
(Y!A only allows 10 links per answer, so I cheated. Change the "/ca/" in the URL for the California Death index to "/ky/" to get Kentucky.)
2,921,383 entries from 1911 – 2000

Maine Death Records
Change the "/ca/" in the URL for the California Death index to "/me/" to get Maine.)
401,960 entries from 1960 – 1997

Missouri Digital Archives
Real records; Year range 1910 – "50 years ago", so the upper limit changes by one every year. Number of entries not stated, but it too would grow over time. Not all counties are here.

Texas Death Records
Change the "/ca/" in the URL for the California Death index to "/tx".)
3,963,456 entries from 1964 – 1998

West Virginia Birth, Death and Marriage records
Real records; number of entries not stated. Years vary by county. Here are the first five counties, to give you a feel for it:

Barbour: 1853 – 1859, 1861 – 1969
