Well that's what I wanted to know. I know you can buy records, lots of places do that. State copy DC are to high unless you had legal need. /They may also have links to free records and obits/ normally that is what I call a lie. Free is fee spelled correct. MO. does have .sos.mo.gov/archives/resources/deathcertificates and its to 1960. Just print or save what you want. WY. is state and death is 1961, which I couldn't get at MO. either. But marriage I thought was free public records. Those wifes last name are hard to get. Then on some you had first husband and her name still is wrong. People at Ancestry will make a big mess of there family. Copy and copy , no look no look on and on. If she died 1795 she didn't have kids 1796 to 1810. Yeah he married the same first name again , oh what a mess this makes. One last thing I guess divorce isn't public record or to be find in Missouri. Anyway I got two someone's that I think is just one. Divorce record would make this true.
