You're welcome. When I've ordered records by mail, I've received them within a week. Most of them are well worth the $5. I started putting them in 3-hole-punched sheet protectors, & inserting them into a binder.
Many other records that can be obtained from the LA Archives are indexed at rootsweb.com. Birth, Death, & Marriage records are indexed, though not all of the indexes are complete yet. I do a search on the surname, or just browse through the indexes. Happy hunting! Stephanie
