I do not need certified copies, for pete sake, of a marriage that occurred a hundred and fifty years ago.
What for?But they get more money for sending us certified copies, I guess.
If someone is alive, and the record has some immediate value other than proving one's pedigree, then I could see spending it.
But the web site says not to call them, that they do not issue them anymore, and please contact the counties directly.When I called them, I got the same explanation by phone.It is expensive for me to buy these things, as they add up.I do not really need certified records for deceased relatives, only for myself and my mother.I already have those, as you need them for primary documents in the event that you lose the identity card, drivers license, or whatever.
Let me know how you did this, please.We are only talking in Illinois, right?I also need my Aunt's birth certificate from Kansas City, MO, circa 1917.
You have given me hope, living on a fixed income and counting every quarter.
