Thanks Pam!I'll probably need all the luck I can get because of all the name misspellings and poor records.I've been told before that most of the record keepers were either drunk or couldn't read and write and I think that still holds true today to some degree. My Dad's birth certificate says his Mom's name was BlackTipps but we know that it was Blaylock and it was spelled Blaylock on his brothers and sisters records. They have my Mom listed wrong on my certificate. Also the lazy people in Little Rock vital records department said they had no record of my Dad but luckily I had a copy of his birth certificate that I GOT FROM THEM IN 1973. Shows what lazy people work there! And I talked to more than one person! I'm afraid to ask them for any more records because they want to keep your money without looking. They all need to be fired! Thanks again and sorry about me venting my frustration with the vital records.
