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.

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?

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.

my mothers father was nine months old and his sister was a year older.They were left with the murdered bodies of their parents in the year 1910.the place was Salado Creek in New Mexico Territory.
My murdered grand parents were Eliseo Chavez he was born in Cebolito, New Mexico in the year 1883 and Amalia Rael.They were 27 and 19 years old.She was his second wife.Norberta Jiron of Alamo was his first wife they had a child named Tomasita.
We have found through research the marriage records of Eliseo and Amalia and through those documents discovered that he was born in Cebolito .Later we found the baptism records of Antonio and Martina Chavez the children of Eliseo And Amalia
We also found through Census records that Amalia had her mother Dorotea Rael living in the same town were the murders were committed We don’t understand why the family did not keep and raise my grand father Antonio or his sister Martina nor do we know what happened to Tomasita.
There are no death records for Eliseo and Amalia yet they are in the 1910 census of New Mexico .There are church records of baptismal for Antonio and Martina. Yet they were raised separately.
it’s all looking like the family of my grand mother new something or were the cause being that they were living there and abandoned the children because they were Indian.It’s hard to imagin a paternal grandmother not taking the children of her daughter who was murdered.Where did she go and why.My grand father spoke dine and his sister Martina spoke hopi.
In the end my grandfather antonio was killed in Santa Rosa New Mexico in front of the court house there is no marker for him there and his sister Martina died some where in Wyoming.of Alzheimer
this will be 100 years of the anniversary of their murders we will place a head stone not over their graves but .somewhere where we can visit .
If they were murdered because of land or mine deeds and the Rael family played a roll in it we want to know the truth about why they left the children with the dead bodies of their parents .
Even the church claims not to have any records of their death yet the church has all other records.Why is there a cover up and why wouldn’t the church have records.
Help solve this mystery .All information will assist the future generations of the surviving family members to get closure .It was bad enough that the grandparents of Eliseo were forced to walk to Fort Sumner on the long walk .Our people survived it’s time to claim what was stolen by the blood of my grand parents for the children s children.
In 2005 the Rael Family divided 4.5 million between 27 heirs of land that was sold to the state.did it take 95 years to sell land or was there a Claus holding it back.Did it belong to them or was it taken from my grand parents.
Look deep find the truth!

The problem is that anyone who knew anything about what actually happened is long dead, and the only thing you have to go on are the records from that time, and if they were tampered with back then, it’s going to be really hard to prove it, unless the party that did the tampering messed up and missed something. The problem is that if they did miss something, to find it now would be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Genealogy Mormon

May 31st, 2011 No comments

One of the largest and most popular sources for those researching their ancestry is the Mormon Church genealogy records. The Mormons, or Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (often abbreviated as LDS), have created an invaluable resource for those why may be on the quest for historical records. The Mormon Family History Library, housing thousands of documents and other records, is located in Salt Lake City, Utah; thankfully for those who are searching, the records are searchable from afar, via several different methods.

Access to the records that have been made available through the Family History Library is not limited to members of the Church itself. The records that consist of a complied collection of millions of microfilms, microfiche, books and handwritten records from across the globe are available, at no cost, to any person who wishes to access them. The records contain data from not only North America but also from Europe, and even as far away as China; the extensive collection of US records includes all of the US Census records from 1790-1920, as well as county and state records that can offers a rare source of family history. In the late ’60’s, the Church created the International Genealogical Index; a comprehensive listing of birth and marriage records of deceased individuals. An enormous amount of effort has gone into the creation and maintenance of this index; including extensive travel and research, by volunteers, into the millions of names that are researchable. The Index also houses military and social security death records that can assist with family history research by providing much sought after dates.

While the Family History Library is open to the public there are a number of ways to access the records in lieu of a trip to Salt Lake City! The most commonly used and easiest method is to search via the internet. It is important to note that while major efforts are underway to digitize the records, not all of the records are yet available for online searching. The information contained within their database is simply data; there are very few scanned copies of actual documents. So do bear in mind that there may be a few errors of the human nature.

An interesting offering by the Mormon Church is the Family Registry; this registry will help to connect you with other researchers who may be doing their own research on another branch of the same tree that you are investigating. A good portion of the research that you are seeking may have already been located by another researcher. Making contact with other researchers is a great way to not only add to your knowledge but it is also a great way to share your own research.

Making direct contact with the Mormon library is, in itself, a good way to get started with your research into Mormon Church genealogy records. While the church staff cannot do your research for you, their helpful hints and tips will go a long way towards pointing you in the right direction to ensure that you get the most out of your searching. Their knowledge of the expansive archives will help to ensure that you are looking in the right place!

How could somebody get from Scotland to America without leaving records?

April 22nd, 2011 3 comments

I have been researching ancestry and one man managed to immigrate to America in the early 1800s without leaving any records. No immigration records exist with his name. Also, he married a woman with an unknown last name in America in 1824 when he was 20 years old. I know that because their first child was born shortly after their marriage in Pennsylvania. I am lead to believe that he must have been a criminal or was forced to leave Scotland (my father told me that his father said that we came over here because somebody didn’t pay their taxes). He left a small town called Leadhills Scotland, and none of his family followed him. Was this guy a criminal, or was record-keeping just not as precise as it is in more current times?

Any ideas would be helpful as this is irritating me to death.

Thank you
I don’t know if this is of any help, but the man is named Joseph E. Kerr.

Also, his wife Mary (?) was born on a ship c. 1805. No marriage records exist. a free Scotlish border prison search I was looking at a link from this website about transported UK convicts yesterday and found lots of information, several took ailas’s so if he did thn he could be using a different name, also look at the Old Baily link as he may have been sent to London to face trial ( and you hope he was as there is full free searchable records)…
Also there are marriages and births registered onboard…you may find he never married rather than it was not recorded and just target searching’ "Joseph Kerr" scotland’ you may find further information… hope he was a convict as a convict is worse than a prisoner and at that time in history he would have been transported and records are easier to get if your ancestors are rich or rogues ( more records)

There are also some Kerr’s on these websites

Add: look on the links page I gave you ( familytimeline’s) under general FH resources at ‘Black sheep ancestry’

How do I look at online records without having to pay at all for them?

March 15th, 2011 1 comment

I’m doing family history research, and I’ve been trying to look up birth, death, marriage, etc records. Every site I go to you have to pay SOMETHING for them. I want FREE online records that I can look at ONLINE without having to pay or get them shipped to my house.

My Mom said to look at court houses, but I can’t find our court houses online.
I live in Mississippi, but I’m looking for records in Pemiscot County of Missouri. That’s where most of my family moved to in the 1900’s on my Dad’s side. On my Mom’s side, I have no clue. Probably Tennessee because they were full Cherokee Indians. And she is half Cherokee Indian.

My Great Aunt has done my Dad’s side of the familys history all the way back to before the civial war, but she’s too picky to share with me any of it.

Anyway, if anyone knows a completely free website where you can look at ONLINE records, then please tell me. And remember NO PAYMENTS. NONE. lol. Most people that answer me always give me a website and they still have some kind of a payment on there. And I don’t want to have to pay anything at all.

There is a site called Heritage Quest that is completely free, but you must get the access code from your public library. Call the library and ask if they subscribe to Heritage Quest and how to access it. You do this online from home, but most libraries require you to have a library card to get the access code.
