Art:Please read Liz Farthing's comments and my reply to her.That should explain it all. The government makes us PAY for warehousing this information, but it is not available to us? Does that smack of taxation without representation? However, Dorothy England Craft also said a lady up around Paris (or somewhere up in northeast Texas) had someone come in one day and want to look at a birth record.She was shocked when that person wanted the birth records of HER OWN BABY who had died while still a baby. Illegal use?Perhaps.And I can see WHY the need for security.But I personally know two of the people who work in Harrison County and they KNOW what I am doing, i.e., genealogy research, so there is no illegal use intended of the information I am seeking.
