I am trying to locate some ancestry on the Lucky family name with connections in north west Missouri(St Joseph, Kansas City area). This is for my father-in-law. He was adopted as a small child but has since found out that his birthname was Lucky. Don't recall what his first name was or if he even found that out.The local authorities have a lot of the information but state laws do not allow them to turn the info over to him even though he is in his late 60s and his birth parents are long dead. He wants to know as much as he can. Says when he goes, he at least wants to know more about where he came from. I can't say that I blame him. I've traced my family tree back to Scotland in the 1600s. I would like to do that for him but I'm at a roadblock here locally.
