Thank you so much for responding.Could you tell me what "type" of information you were able to obtain?I keep thinking of them because they are a resource, but haven't know what type of information they might provide.
The ancestor that died there is actually the brother to my gr grandfather----the ancestor who was in the hospital never married or had any children, so there are no direct descedants for him, but do they require that you are a direct descendant?
One last question---do you have to take the form to a judge, or mail it to a judge, or do they take care of that?
I just know nothing about any of this, so it really helps to have the direction and advice from someone who has "jumped through the hoops" already.I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. Thanks, Michelle
