My question was-How do I obtain church documents? Do you just write to the church and they send you copies??
debbie, you can also get social security apps.. but you have to have the soc
numbers.. sometimes the death certs dont have the parents names cause they
didnt know them.. its risky,, but they do help.
social security started in 34 but the death index is online. for the older
records you would need to do the freedom of information act. and just
tell them its for genealogy purposes..
the above is for searches..
that is for obtaining older records ( if you have the soc # from the death certs)
if they died before 1962 they wont be in the database.. and or if the family
didnt report it..
hope this helps :)
