Confirming The Link

The was by far the best gift ever. I purchased this Death Record with the funds of a matured Series E Saving Bonds given to me by my mother years ago.

This was a public document that give me more than I had ever in my wildest dreams imagined.

"Cousin" Erin was a wonderful find - she gave me the skinny on 'Skinny' while I gave her Martin's life from birth to the early, early 1900's.

Cuz ME was introduced to me by her brother - he describes her as his 'world-famous- genealogist-sister'. What a hoot ! ! !

I know this document must have brought a million questions to your mind.

Post your comments and questions in my "Comments".

Reposting helped a bit, but I am still a poor student who needs a lot of educating. I am thinking of making a small donation to further your detective work.
I now see that this is a 'Certification' of the death of Bridget Madden. I see 'white,' '64,' and 'Jackson Co, MO'

Try printing the document and then you should be able to read as well as seeing the orginal document. Lots of great info here.

Really hit the jackpot with this one. Opened many doors.
