We are currently finishing up paperwork to finally get the records. Did not help husband's wallet was lost and needed to get new ID. They do want a notarized letter stating you are who you are. You have to request 'ALL' records or they will only send parts of the file.
I hope this helps anyone else out there looking for pieces of the family lives, their lives... It has taken me years to finally find this info. Once we finally get a copy of the records, I will update the thread.
