I am trying to track down my mother's father who divorced my grandmother before my mother was born. My grandmother cut all ties with him and all I can verify is a divorce record (not the actual document- haven't been able to get that on Ancestry.com). I have also found another person with this same name on Ancestry.com but I cannot link the two for sure unless I can get a social security number for the man on the divorce record. Does anyone know if the divorce certificate (or whatever would be on file at the court house) would have this information? The court house seems to have only a limited number of files available, but I'm considering paying to try to get the divorce cert. but don't want to waste my money if the SSN is not on there.
Thanks a million for any information you can give me.
