Re: [NJ] Porter Records-Added info
In Response To: Re: [NJ] Porter Records ()

I was going through my files and noticed something. My paternal grandfather and father shared the exact same name, but they were Jr and Sr. Both of them had to stop working because of medical problems, not, according to death certificates, to do with their employment.
They both worked for the same company, doing somewhat the same jobs. Now I told you when I first tried to find info about my grandfather I DID NOT HAVE A SSI number. I was told I needed this, but no where I searched, was there one. BECAUSE of someone transferring me to another long time employed person, they found what I told you in my first response to your posting. That's when I found out his birthdate given at time of employment and saw, what I think was his handwriting on this application. It's funny how little things like that will amaze you--handwriting. BUT the other side is, after I requested information for my father, I was sent a record for my grandfather at the same time, giving me even more info about his employment.
What I am saying here is, at the time of my research NO ONE was willing to look at the records on hand. But because of all of the similarity of the father and son's info, I have both records..either by accident or......
Don't believe these companies or court houses that said ALL RECORDS WERE DESTROYED. There's always something some where in their files. They need it to justify a lot of information. GOOD LUCK!!!!
