Depending on the size of your family or if you have any estranged relatives, piecing together your family history and making a record of it can be a challenge. You may be able to learn information from different relations, but what you will likely discover is that there are a lot of gaps in your tree. In order to fill these naked branches you might have to go beyond relying on the memories of others, and find more solid proof with public records.
For instance, you might be aware that your great aunt and uncle divorced, but do you have any idea where this took place and when it occurred? You can find out by looking into their divorce records.
How can you find these documents? You essentially have two options. The first is to attempt to look through public record archives. However, before you can do this, you need to find out what state they were divorced in, and you also might need permission to access this data. However, if you do manage to find it, itˇ¦s free. The second options is to search for the vital record you need online by accessing a commercial directory that has been created, maintained, and updated by a company. Although this is not a no-cost method it saves you a substantial amount of time, and supplies you with data in a clean and organized manner. Thus, there is no need to spend, hours or days searching.
In addition, the small convenience fee you pay doesnˇ¦t only provide easy access to a divorce certificate, you can also find out the names of you great aunt and uncle when they were married. This means you can learn what your auntˇ¦s maiden name was. You may also be able to obtain civil divorce court record resources, original marriage records, names of family members and other info. Note: the divorce certificate will reveal when and where the legal separation took place.
With an online public record search you no longer need to wonder when were my aunt and uncle divorced, because you will find the answer quickly as long as their records are included in the directory. Simply look up one of their full names on the site that provides the search to make this discovery.
