Thanks for your quick response. The area is Perth Amboy, Woodbridge, Sewaren, NJ. All towns in the county of Middlesex and the time is anytime from 1900 to 1957 (upon her death). I'll wait and see what results I can get before I contact the state for records. I recently did my own birth certificate and it cost me just under $50.00. Not a figure I'm comfortable with when I have so many possible family members to research. Thanks very much for your help. I really appreciate the support.
