Has anyone ordered a death certificate from the City of Detroit's vital records office? How long does it take? The fee system and the exact death date requirements seem to be different if you do it directly through them than if you use the vitalchek website. There is one ancestor whose information I haven't found on ancestry or familysearch. I'm hoping the certificate will list more information than familysearch provides - cause of death for instance.
Also, if you suspect that family members were removed from a home and put into an orphanage or foster care system, where would you look for that sort of information?
