Tips & Tricks
Use a Correspondence Log! This includes the name and address of the person you have written to, what you requested, the date the request was sent and the outcome. Remembering every letter written is impossible. Follow up if you don’t get an answer within a month.

Death Records can be the least accurate records depending upon the knowledge of the person reporting the information about the deceased.. Unfortunately, you will never be able to report your own information. How much do your children know about you?

Birth Records are difficult to obtain because they can be used for so many purposes. You may be required to provide proof of relationship and proof of the person's death.
